Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge triple sec was created in 1880 by combining the warmth and complexity of cognac with the bitterness of orange essence. Often dubbed 'Red Ribbon' due to the wax-sealed and red bow presentation, Grand Marnier has gained appreciators in over 150 countries, with a bottle sold every two seconds.
The delectable recipe for Grand Marnier includes meticulously distilled Caribbean Bigardia oranges, known for their uniquely bitter quality. The result is a product of superior quality; so much so that it was presented to Queen Elizabeth II in a special-edition bottle on her 80th birthday. Slow ageing in French oak casks asserts a round and subtle flavour that is perfect for making Grand Marnier cocktails. Likewise, this triple sec is finely suited for inclusion in a Grand Marnier recipe of your own creation.
Tasting Note: A topaz gold appearance with amber tints. A palate of bitter orange, as enriched by the cognac base, is complemented by suggestions of orange marmalade and hazelnut, which lead to a long finish of balanced harmony.
