Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge liqueur is made from a blend of Cognac brandy, distilled essence of bitter orange, and sugar. Created in 1880 by Louis-Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle and was first served at receptions given by Edward VII and Emperor Franz Joseph before becoming a favourite of the Russian Court.

Immediately recognizable in the glass, this is a classic liqueur from the start, lightly boozy on the nose, but redolent with sharp orange peel and some spicy elements. The palate is less intense than you’d think, definitively orange-fueled, but with plenty of brandy elements to back it up. Think more of that vanilla, some raisins, a hint of milk chocolate, and even some banana notes. More complex than you’d expect, it’s a delight on its own and when used as a mixer, adding complexity to a cocktail that triple sec just can’t provide.
