Cultivated from rare black cherries found in the French Basque Country, GREY GOOSE Cherry Noir combines the aroma of fresh cherries and sweet red fruits with dark fruit flavors and layers of spice. The result: a sophisticated, sensuous flavored vodka and exceptional complement to any night. They begin by harvesting the highest-quality soft winter wheat from the rich, fertile farmlands in and around the Picardy region in the north of France. The whole wheat is then milled to a precise grade of flour before being fermented and distilled. The high-proof spirit then travels south to Gensac where it is blended with pure spring water drawn from 500 feet beneath the limestone hills of the Grande Champagne region of Cognac.
