The man behind Grey Goose, Francois Thibault, learnt his spirit making skills in the Cognac region and more than the odd eye brow was raised when he moved to making Vodka. The vodka is indeed made in France but has gone on to be a huge international success. Very specific lemons are used to create Citron. All are selected from Menton, a small town in the South of France. Here lemon skins are thicker which produce a milder and less acidic flavour.
As you might expect it is the lemon freshness that comes through. There is also a hint of sweetness.
