The Orange Flavour in Quintessence

Grand Marnier uses bitter oranges for the unique time-honored Marnier recipe, called “double parfum”. In order to create the “double parfum,” orange peels are macerated with the perfume of the first distillation.

This is followed by a second distillation to further refine the flavor and produce the final result: an amazingly tantalizing and delicious flavor. Finally the Cognacs, orange and sugar are blended and then aged another 12 months in oak casks – this period is called “marriage time”.

Grand Marnier was founded in 1880 by Louis-Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle and produces the world’s most known orange liqueur.

Price is at $700 per bottle.
