Grey Goose makes its vodka with the tender winter wheat of Picardy, a location chosen with utmost care for its superior grain. We are fans of many of the French brand’s flavored vodkas, since they always taste clean with never a hint of artifice. Their Cherry Noir is a standout. Featuring black cherries harvested from the southwest of France, this vodka boasts a clear, distinctive aroma courtesy of Grey Goose’s insistence on macerating the cherries, an effective method that involves soaking and mashing them to add natural fruit flavor. A creamy mouthfeel balances a tart note on the palate, and it finishes bright, lingering and warm thanks to cinnamon and allspice.
