Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge is a premium fusion of Cognacs with wild tropical oranges from the Caribbean. It was created in 1880 by founder Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle. The idea of Louis-Alexandre to combine French Cognac with the essence of exotic oranges was seen to be avant-garde and the very first invention in spirits at the time.
Grand Marnier is an adaptable spirit that tastes fantastic in both traditional and unusual cocktails. It can also be sipped alone on the rocks.
Ugni Blanc grapes from five of the top crus in the French Cognac region are used to create Grand Marnier Cognac blend, which is then double-distilled in copper stills. Their bitter, exotic orange, known as "Citrus Bigaradia," is a rare variety that gives a powerful and distinctive flavour profile and aroma, sourced from the Caribbean.
