Adolphe and Édouard-Jean Cointreau founded the distillery in Angers in 1849, which bears their name. In 1875, Édouard created a "triple dry" liquor, based on orange peels, characterized by a new distillation process and patented shaped bottles. Cointreau was the first triple sec registered trademark, in 1885, at the Angers Commercial Court. The company's success perpetuated its development: shop on the Champs-Élysées, export to the United States, a new distillery in Saint-Barthélemy-d'Anjou in 1969, merger with Rémy Martin cognacs in 1989. Listed on the stock exchange, the Rémy Cointreau group sells 15 million bottles of Cointreau liqueur per year, 90% of which are exported.
The triple dry Angevin recipe invented by Édouard-Jean remains secret. The bitter and sweet orange peels are dried for a long time before macerating in brandy. The triple dry is distilled three times in copper stills. Its alcohol content is 40°C. The crystal clarity of the liquor is striking.
The nose harmoniously combines the aromas of bitter orange with vegetal scents and the acidity of lemon. The unctuous palate has the assertive character that gives it the strength of alcohol, with a balance between sweet aromas and a hint of bitterness. Cointreau 1l is appreciated alone or on ice. Liquor is also a famous component for the most famous cocktails, such as Margarita, White Lady or Cosmopolitan. Cooks and pastry chefs also know how to use their virtues skillfully.
