PRODUCTION DETAILS: Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge is the signature spirit of the Grand Marnier house, and was originally conceived in 1880. This spirit is the result of the careful blending of the finest cognacs and later distilled with the natural essence of tropical oranges brought directly from the Caribbean. The liqueur is then artfully matured in large oak barrels for six months before being bottled, bringing out the best qualities and the true character of the spirit. The citrus flavours of oranges and the exquisite nature of this cognac blend make Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge the perfect choice for a sipping drink, weather you prefer it as an aperitif or as a digestive. Or better yet, try it as part of your favourite cocktail to bring a touch of all the French class and sophistication into your life.
