Cointreau is a well-balanced liqueur combining intensely sweet and bitter orange flavours. Steeped in a long and vibrant French history, Cointreau Triple Sec dates back to 1875, when it was first distilled and sold by Edouard Cointreau. The Cointreau recipe, a closely guarded secret and family heirloom, personifies the very quintessence of a balanced liqueur. Intense sweet and bitter flavours emit from ripened and unripened, inherently diverse oranges.
Favourite Cointreau cocktails include the Cosmopolitan, whilst recipes for vinaigrette, chutney and desserts are also revolutionising dishes throughout the world.
Tasting Note: Balanced and intense, the palate is simultaneously warm, refreshing, gentle, bitter and sweet. A white flower, fruit and spice aroma is fitted with essential orange oil and an appearance of clarity at room temperature turns opalescent upon cooling.
