For the first time, Grey Goose, the super premium vodka, is opening the doors of Le Logis, its exquisite, French manor brand home, to the public for two extraordinary guest experiences on 4-6 August and 25-27 August 2016.
Grey Goose Le Logis Summer Open House will offer guests a specially curated journey that explores what lies behind the French luxury vodka brand with a unique, two–day itinerary. This extraordinary Grey Goose trip comprises a series of unexpected summer experiences and the opportunity to be immersed in a world governed by the finest French craftsmanship and artisanry. These unique and engaging moments have been carefully curated to enthuse even the most-worldly travellers.
Grey Goose creator and Cellar Master François Thibault said, “I am delighted to open the doors of Le Logis, the brand home of Grey Goose vodka, to guests for the first time. If you’re searching for an exceptional and inspirational summer travel experience, then I believe you will find it here.”
Situated in the heart of the Cognac region of France, Le Logis is a beautifully restored 17th century country manor housee comprising 14 individually styled bedrooms, dining room, open house kitchen, outdoor swimming pool with BBQ and cocktail bar. Its décor is ‘contemporary elegant’ in style and offers the ultimate in relaxed luxury. It also features a series of immersive spaces created to showcase the Grey Goose journey from field to bottle.
Grey Goose Le Logis Summer Open House is the ultimate two-day getaway for those wanting to experience the very finest local French food, carefully curated summer experiences and superb Grey Goose cocktails. Inspired by the informal luxury of its surroundings, guests will be encouraged to make themselves at home, whether helping themselves to a mid-morning snack in the farmhouse-style kitchen, reclining in one of the loungers by the pool, riding a vintage bicycle around the picturesque vineyards, enjoying a game of pétanque in the courtyard or taking a stroll through the estate’s perfectly landscaped gardens, home to a variety of naturally occurring fruits and herbs from the local countryside.
On the first morning, after a relaxed poolside barbecue featuring Grey Goose Le Grand Fizz summer cocktails on arrival the evening before, guests will be invited to join Grey Goose Maître de Chai François Thibault for a remarkable behind-the-scenes journey of one of the world’s most celebrated French luxury brands.
Guests will then be shown to La Boulangerie, a fully equipped on-site bakery. A vodka of exceptional quality and taste, Grey Goose is made from an unlikely source – soft winter wheat from the Picardie Region, known as the “bread basket” of France. An expert local French baker will be on hand to guide those wanting to produce the perfect French baguette using the same wheat used in the production of Grey Goose vodka.
The tour ends in La Mixologie where guests will be given an inspiring Grey Goose cocktail master class hosted by an expert Grey Goose mixologist who will demonstrate how to create a bespoke Grey Goose martini cocktail for their palate.
Day two will see al fresco summer serves and a continental lunch of local speciality dishes, and Grey Goose Summer martini cocktails followed by a formal indoor dining experience created by local chefs in the evening. An experience like no other, Le Logis is the ideal trip for those looking for the ultimate celebration to add to a stay in France or a unique luxury mini break.
“In opening of the doors of Le Logis, we are for the first time allowing guests to experience the brand in a completely unique way, providing exclusive behind the scenes access and telling the incredible story of how this spectacular vodka was created,” said Shane Hoyne, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) for Europe. “Grey Goose Le Logis Open House will defy their expectations on how great a vodka really can be.”
