Citrus Splendor: The Grandeur of Grand Marnier

History and Pedigree: In the quaint village of Neauphle-le-Château, the legacy of Grand Marnier began with Jean Baptiste Lapostolle's first distillery in 1827. This legacy significantly turned when his granddaughter Julia married Louis-Alexandre Marnier, birthing the iconic Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge in 1880. A concoction that harmoniously blends Cognac brandy with the distilled essence of Haitian bitter orange, it's a testament to the Marnier-Lapostolle family's innovative spirit. The name, conceived by Swiss hotelier César Ritz, captures the essence of its grandeur, marking its presence in the legendary Hotel Ritz Paris. With a rich history that intertwines with the Belle Époque's luxury, Grand Marnier has not only celebrated its heritage through anniversary editions but also embraced the future with its acquisition by the Campari Group in 2016.

Production Highlights: Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge embodies excellence, created from a meticulous selection of Cognac and the essence of exotic bitter oranges. This liqueur's production process is a closely guarded tradition, ensuring each bottle captures the essence of its distinguished origins. Using vanilla flavors from the cognac enhances its complexity, making it a unique treasure among spirits.
