Grey Goose Cherry Noir

Top Flavored Vodkas

Grey Goose Cherry Noir is made from rare black cherries

Grey Goose Cherry Noir

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.

Price: $30
