Created by the Sidney Frank Importing Company, Grey Goose was named the world's best-tasting vodka within two years of its founding. In 2004, the French vodka not only became the best-selling premium vodka in the United States — selling more than 1.5 million cases that year — it was also acquired by Bacardi. Grey Goose remains popular as ever in 2017 yet also continues to experiment with new varieties; Grey Goose Le Melon, for example, came onto the market in summer 2014, as made with Cavaillon melons from the Provence region of France.
Here's one that uses some of the seasonal vodkas of Grey Goose.
