Grand Marnier

Grand Marnier

Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge liqueur is the leading French liqueur in export sales and the third highest selling liqueur worldwide. They use only one variety of orange, Citrus Bigaradia, the richest in essential oils. The oranges are grown traditionally on their own plantation in the Caribbean and are hand-picked. The peels are dried in the sun and are then macerated and distilled to bring out their purest essence. It is the combination of this aromatic elixir with the finest cognacs that is behind Grand Marnier liqueur. Given its power and complexity, this liqueur opens the door to infinite culinary possibilities.
