Grey Goose VX Vodka (750ml)
'VX', which stands for 'vodka exceptionelle is, according to the producers, a “significant step for the vodka/ white spirits category”. Launched in 2014 for Travel Retail, this new expression from the highly regarded Vodka producer is created from grapes from the Grande Champagne cru of Cognac and has a hint of 1er Cru cognac added.
Mike Birch, managing director of Bacardi global travel retail, comments: “This really is… creating a truly innovative and exceptional ultra-premium offering to enhance and expand the vodka experience for luxury spirits connoisseurs across white and dark categories." He adds, "... we wanted to create something truly disruptive in this category.”
Extravagantly packaged in a decanter reminiscent of a Cognac bottle, Francois Thibault, the creator of Grey Goose, added: “In creating Grey Goose VX, I wanted to capture the aromatic notes of a precious Cognac, bringing its delicate essence of orchard fruits, plum, apricot and the mild flavours of wild honey to the remarkable character of Grey Goose vodka.” 40% Alc./Vol.
