Summer is here and the temps are clearly heating up all over.
Premium vodka supplier, Grey Goose® is honoring its French heritage by celebrating Bastille Day with the Grey Goose Storm.
Bastille Day is held each July 14th, and the event marks the anniversary of the storming of Bastille – one of the most important events of the French Revolution.
