The film industry strives to celebrate relentless ambition. Like GREY GOOSE vodka’s creator François Thibault, who succeeded to create a vodka of exceptional quality and uncompromising taste, both the film industry and GREY GOOSE share the same daring spirit and passionate pursuit of the extraordinary; after all “if you can imagine it, it can be done.” (François Thibault).
