Grey Goose RTD

Grey Goose Essences soon to hit UK markets

Ready-To-Drink (RTD) cocktails are becoming a trend in today’s Spirits world. Beverage companies and brands are moving towards producing and manufacturing RTD cocktails using the company’s whiskies, rum, vodka, or tequila as the base. Each RTD varies in flavour and taste but it never compromises on the quality; giving a bar-like cocktail experience.

Grey Goose Vodka brand owned by Bacardi has recently announced to launch their Essence Spritz range in the U.K. next month. The brand also unveils its first ready-to-drink range.

Grey Goose Essences range is carefully crafted from botanicals selected from all over the world. Grey Goose Essences is available in three flavours: Strawberry & Lemongrass, Watermelon & Basil, and White Peach & Rosemary. The range uses Grey Goose Vodka as the base into which the ‘real’ fruits and botanicals are blended to give unique and vibrant flavours. The ingredients are exported from countries such as France, Spain, Thailand, and Sri Lanka. Each Essences expression contains 82 calories per 50ml serve, no artificial ingredients, and clocks at 30% ABV.


The subtle taste of freshly picked strawberries meets aromatic notes of lemongrass for a cocktail experience like no other.

“Spritzes and drinks featuring botanicals have been growing trends, and with consumers increasingly trying their hand at mixology, we knew there was an exciting opportunity to create a distinctive drink using real fruit essences that would take the guesswork out of mixing light tasting and delicious cocktails at home.”

By Martin de Dreuille, Grey Goose vice-president of global marketing

After the hit success of the product in the U.S. following its launch in February last year, the brand decided to launch the range in the U.K market by next month.

Furthermore, the brand will unveil ready-to-drink (RTD) variants of the range mixed with soda water, called Grey Goose Essences Vodka Spritz. The collection marks the first RTD line for the brand. The RTDs comes with an ABV of 4.5% and contain 79 calories per 250ml can.

Essences will be priced at RRP £39 (US$51.40) per 700ml bottle and available for purchase from Waitrose, Tesco, Majestic Wine, and Costco, along with select on-trade accounts. The RTDs will be available from June 2022.
