Grey Goose Vodka
4.54 / 5 based on 8,925 Reviews
Distilled in Cognac, France, Grey Goose Vodka owes its smooth taste to the mastery of the Matre de Chai (Master of the Cellar), who combines alpine spring water with French winter wheat. This vodka has a delightfully crisp taste with a hint of burnt charcoal and aniseed finishing with a clear palate. Grey Goose Vodka is delightfully smooth and is best served straight, on the rocks or in a Martini but is also great in a tall cocktail. For a twist, try all the other flavors. see more...

Grey Goose Vodka
Here's where Grey Goose fits into the picture. You've been invited to d dinner party with friends. You know the host will offer you a drink. You know the host isn't a "Vodka person" and will probably try and slip you a Popov or, at best, an Absolut. So, your'e only hope here is to bring a gift, a nice bottle of alcohol, to the party. So, you stop off at the grocery store (because you're running late, like usual, and don't have time to go to that liquor store across town that stocks a good variety of Vodkas). So, anyhow, you're in the grocery store and you have a choice of Absolut, Skyy, Popov, Vox, Grey Goose, Belvedere and maybe a few other brands. So, you choose the Grey Goose, because it's the best you can find in a large grocery store chain. (we'll, I'd argue that Belvedere would be about equal, but that's another story). You bring it to the party, offer it to the host (much cooler to bring a premium Vodka that a bottle of wine, IMHO). The host offers you a drink, you ask for your Vodka drink. Host says "let's try this, what's it called again, Grey Goose that you brought" You get your Premium drink. The host pours himself one. The host learns the difference between Vodka and GREAT Vodka.
Among the different types of liquor available on the market, vodka is the type that is often the least distinguishable. Many admit that they have a difficult time telling one vodka from another and this is part of the reason why inexpensive vodkas sell so well. But to the discerning palate there is an unmistakable difference with some of the premium vodkas and one that I reach for when I feel the urge for some clear liquor is **Grey Goose Vodka**, a premium vodka produced in France **Vodka Commentary:** Grey Goose Vodka is completely clear and flows as smoothly as a glass of water. The nose on Grey Goose is slight, with scents of smoke, vanilla and alcohol prevailing along with a touch of cooked grains. The taste of Grey Goose is typical of most vodka in some ways, mainly in the area of complexity.
It's good, but I honestly can't taste the difference between this and some of the cheaper products. It doesn't have as much of a burn as cheaper products, but it still has the same overpowering vodka taste. I've mixed this with all kinds of different drinks, and it is still very noticeable no matter what I put it in. I personally don't think the product is worth what you pay for it, but if you have the money, it's not a bad buy.

I'll start this by saying that in the last few years my alcohol intake has dwindled to almost zero. As I have entered my 30s my health has become very important and putting things that are unhealthy and have nasty ingredients into my body just doesn't make sense anymore. (Also, not having a hangover in over a year has not hurt my feelings.) That being said, when I do have an occasional cocktail I want the alcohol to be high quality with no added garbage. So when I order my Moscow Mule, I always order it with Grey Goose. It's a high quality Vodka, with a smooth taste and honestly it can't be best in my opinion.
Grey Goose is always just been a favorite from the time it came out when I was the owner of a bar that was one of my best selling vodkas on the shelf and it was always use whether it was straight on the Rocks mixed in a cosmo or just a dry martini it was just one of the best sellers I can truly say that it's smooth it's going to be a classic and years to come and it'll be around for a long time
This Vodka is more of a treat for me because of the price on itsomerimes it can be rwal expensive but it is a very smooth drink and it is my favorite Christmas Drink because it is very good to cook with and add to Adult Christmas treats like cakes cookies and fudge and brownies it gives the treats a sweet smooth taste and this is another drink I can't mix with so I will have about a 1/3 of a cup full and sit on the couch with friends and family play games watch movies and savvor the taste that it this vodka has also they have really nice Bonus Christmas gift one year I was able to buy a gift box that came with two glasses and a fifth of vodka for a real good price this is another favorite vodka of mine I call this my rich classy vodka because of the taste and how smooth it is
Grey Goose is my favorite all time vodka. It is a super smooth vodka and perfect for creating mixed drinks. I love to always have a bottle of this at home for any occasion but it can be pricey. Love mixing it with cranberry juice or pineapple juice.
The first time I ever tried this I was bartending and won a contest and recieved one very large bottle with a shaker and 2 glasses with the goose logo on them. I will say it was in my liquor cabinet at home for a little while before I decided to crack it open. When I cracked it open the first time I tried it on the rocks and mixed with pineapple juice. This is probably the only vodka I could drink straight. Its very smooth and crisp. It has a taste about it that doesnt burn your throat. And mixed with pineapple or cranberry juice its amazing. It is my go to drink whenever I am in a restuarant or a classy Piano Bar. Well worth a try.
This is the crem da l crem of vodka. I will not use anything else! It’s higher end but you absolutely get what you pay for. It’s so good in any vodka drink your whipping up. It’s the smoothest and doesn’t give you that awful after taste kick when you drink it. Grey Goose Vodka Is the best vodka.
