Cointreau - 70cl - 40% ABV
Born during the Industrial Revolution and bred of La Belle Époque, Cointreau has innovation in its DNA. From the entrepreneurial flair of a liquorist-distiller who created the House in 1849, to Édouard Cointreau releasing his recipe for a unique French orange liqueur, to more than 300 international awards won since, Cointreau’s rich history is marked by many milestones.
Cointreau is no stranger to the unexpected and its deep amber bottle conceals a visual surprise: a perfectly transparent liqueur. When mixed, the crystalline liqueur becomes opalescent, a physical testament to the high concentration of orange essence.
Cointreau is an aromatic feat and owes this impact to a complex blend of orange peel essences. Zesty, fresh, floral, sweet… To taste it's a symphony of unexpected dualities: It has an instant freshness yet lingers on the palate, is a harmonious blend of nuanced notes yet remains intensely orange. In cocktails, Cointreau serves as a flavour amplifier, helping reveal the other ingredients while bringing balance, depth, and freshness to the mix.
