Product Details

Superb, rich aromas of candied oranges, hints of tobacco and Balsamic vinegar tempt in this exceptional French liqueur, originally introduced in 1927 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the maison’s founding. It is an exceptional blend of refined XO Cognacs from the best crus of the Grande and Petite Champagne regions, blended with the essence of wild tropical oranges. Fine, older Cognacs offer round and velvety notes on the palate, with lingering flavors of dried fruit, almonds and honey, followed by a lovely lengthy finish of orange essence, dried fruit and powerful Cognac. Enjoy it neat, or on the rocks.

About the Producer

Grand Marnier was created in 1827 by Jean-Baptiste Lapostolle, who founded a small distillery to create fruit liqueurs in Neauphle-le-Château, a small village near Paris. The original name for the liqueur was “Curaçao Marnier,” but it was so highly regarded by friend César Ritz that the company renamed it Grand Marnier in honor of its creator. Today, the company has an entire portfolio of liqueurs made with Cognac and the essence of orange, whose offerings vary due to the age of the included Cognacs.
