For those of you who live in, or are traveling to Australia, there’s a great new product due to be released on April 01, 2014.
Already available in various other corners of the globe, Cointreau Noir is a blend of the original orange liqueur and a Rémy Martin cognac produced specifically for this purpose. The brainchild of master distiller, Bernadette Langlais from Cointreau, and Pierrette Trichet of Rémy Martin, it was inspired by a recipe that dates back around a century, Majestic. This was an early 20th century creation by Edouard Cointreau and Langlais has taken this and given it a modern twist to create Cointreau Noir.
Said by Cointreau to be aimed at both those who love single malt whisky, as well as the female portion of the market, this is a blend of 70 per cent Cointreau and 30 per cent Rémy Martin cognac.
Alfred Cointreau, a 6th generation member of the Cointreau family, said that the company is excited to get feedback on the product from both bartenders and consumers.
We don’t yet have a price in Australian dollars for Cointreau Noir, but in the USA it can be purchased for around $45 US dollars per 750ml bottle.
