In 1985, the master distiller for Cointreau went to Brazil hoping to find ingredients for a new recipe he hoped to create. While there, he encountered a new and incredible fruit for the first time: passion fruit. He took this new fruit back to France with him where it served as the inspiration for a new and unique product. Thus, in 1986, Passoã was created.
Passoã is a liqueur that is flavoured by passion fruit. At just 17% alcohol per volume, it is not very strong, so you can use it to add flavour to a drink while making sure that it does not weigh the mix down with too much alcohol. Perfect for taking things a bit more slowly and making the night last longer, Passoã is a refreshing drink which comes in a distinctive black bottle.
The bright red liqueur gives off the delightful flavour of fresh passion fruit. This intense and colourful drink has been gaining popularity over its 30 years of existence. It now serves as a key ingredient in a number of cocktails. Its exotic fruitiness is very easy to marry with many types of other beverages, both alcoholic and not. Get inspired by the passion inherent in every bottle and mix Passoã into your next drink.

PRODUCTION DETAILS: Inspired in a trip to Brazil in 1985 where he encountered the marvels of maracuja or passion fruit, Cointreau's Master Distiller went back to France to create this amazing fruity liqueur. Creamy and sweet, this concoction quickly became a favourite for bartenders and folks at home for its versatility and ability to blend perfectly in all kinds of cocktails and exotic mixed drinks. The final touch of sophistication is given by the bottle, painted in a deep black colour and a colourful design for the logo. With over 30 years on the market, the vivid red colour and the marvellous set of fruity aromas and flavours have become a beacon for the creation of exotic beverages, both with and without alcohol.
