VICE debunked the myth that Kirkland Vodka is rebranded Grey Goose, though they do share the same water source. Nevertheless, Costco’s vodka is a favorite among Redditors, and it’s far cheaper than most name-brand competitors. “The vodka is probably the best you can get for the price,” one Costco shopper commented.
