I've been drinking Goose for many years. I do venture into other vodkas from time to time but for me Grey Goose set the bar. Good clean vodka to enjoy with my tonic.
NOSE - CLEAR, FRESH WITH AN ELEGANT FLORAL AROMA ACCENTED BY A SUBTLE CITRUS NOTE. PALATE - INITIALLY SOFT WITH A GENTLE SWEETNESS THAT GRADUALLY ENVELOPS THE MOUTH-SMOOTH AND ROUNDED TEXTURE WITH A HINT OF ALMOND. FINISH - FRESH AND BRIGHT THROUGHOUT WITH A LONG, SATISFYING FINISH.
Grey Goose was designed for the American market in 1997 by Sidney Frank, a self-made billionaire. After the advent of the premium vodka market by rival Polish vodka brand Belvedere vodka in 1996, his concept was to create a high quality vodka for Americans. He took the idea from the notion of French manufacturing having an inherent link with high perceived quality, quickly dispatching a team to Europe. Grey Goose was created as a result.
