In crafting GREY GOOSE Le Citron, François Thibault began, with the finest lemons including those grown in the world-renowned Menton region of France. The lemons are concentrated into a complex citrus oil extract to preserve the bright flavours while leaving lingering hints of the citrus flower and lemon tree leaf.
Menton, a small town in the south of France, is the legendary lemon-growing region of Europe. Menton lemons are larger and thicker-skinned than their Western counterparts. These irregularly shaped lemons are milder and less acidic. The thicker peels yield higher levels of essential oil, making Menton lemons the favorite of respected French chefs.
