Halloween Spirit Pick


Grey Goose

From field to bottle, Creator Francois Thibault oversees every step in the creation of Grey Goose. It is distilled only once using a continuous-column distillation process ensuring the quality of the wheat remains. The soft winter wheat is grown by three local farming coops in the Picardy region of France. After distillation the high-proof spirit is blended with spring water from their own exclusive well in Cognac that is naturally filtered through limestone. The result is one of the worlds Premium Vodkas.

Bloody Marys Pair well with Brunch and snack foods like a breakfast casserole or with spicy charcuterie meats, pickled speared items and pearls onions. Olives and veggie trays. A very versatile cocktail
