How to drink Grande Bagosse

A vodka is tasted like a whiskey. It is suggested to drink very small sips at a time.

Barley will give a nice roundness in the mouth while a sweet taste of rye will appear in the final.

HistoRY

The Grande Bagosse Al Capone is a nod to the Bas-Saint-Laurent farmers. During the alcohol prohibition period, some farmers kept part of their barley and rye crop to make alcohol.

This contraband alcohol crossed the United States to Rivière-Bleue or was sent on the St. Lawrence River to the French islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon.
