Grand Marnier «Cordon Rouge» – a delightful exquisite orange liqueur based on cognac. The idea of creating a delicious fruit liqueur was born in 1880 when Louis-Alexandre Marnier-Lapostle decided to combine cognac with exotic oranges, which at that time were considered a gourmet dish. The blend of liquor includes extracts from wild orange peels and cognac from France’s best varieties. The recipe for this fragrant liqueur has not yet been disclosed. It is only known that exceptional quality cognac with many years of aging is used to create it. And tropical oranges are grown in Haiti on plantations owned by the Marnier-Lapostol company. This recipe and the aging of the liquor in oak barrels for six months remain unchanged to this day.
Thanks to this and the highest quality and sophistication of the drink, Cordon Rouge is today one of the most famous French liqueurs in the world and is supplied to more than one hundred and fifty countries. The prototype of the elegant shape and color of the bottle is the silhouette of a copper cube for cognac distillation. Additional color is given to it by a scarlet ribbon with a wax seal.
Since 2003, the company Grand Marnier has put a limited collection of bottles on sale – Limited Edition. Each of these bottles is a unique creation, in which the traditional forms and history of the bottle design are played up by designers and receive a modern reading, combining the past and the present. Today, Grand Marnier is part of the Campari corporation.
