Cointreau is a crystal clear Triple Sec created in France in 1885. It’s an essential for any bar, being at the heart of more than 500 cocktails, including some of the world’s most celebrated cocktails the Margarita, the Cosmopolitan and the Sidecar.
Cointreau’s flavor profile is a symphony of unexpected dualities: It has an instant freshness yet lingers on the palate, is a harmonious blend of nuanced notes yet remains intensely orange. In cocktails, Cointreau serves as a flavor amplifier, helping reveal the other ingredients while bringing balance, depth, and freshness to the mix.
Cointreau is crafted in their unique distillery in Angers, France guarded by their Master Distiller Carole Quinton. According to the method defined by Edouard Cointreau in 1885 the orange liqueur is distilled in traditional copper alembics. Every drop of Cointreau is made from only four natural ingredients; orange peels, alcohol, water and sugar.
Crystal clear with remarkable brightness. Droplets form on the sides of the glass suggest an extraordinary smooth richness.
On the nose, Cointreau releases fresh zesty notes, bitter orange with a touch of lime and mint. Floral notes of orange flower, rose and lavender are also present on a deeper layer. Rounder, fruity notes of sweet oranges, bergamot and lemon follow through, with a touch of candied fruit. Spicy notes of pepper are present when you swirl Cointreau in the glass, with cardamom and green tea aromas.
After a first sip of Cointreau to train your taste buds, take another sip, and let yourself be surprised by the Cointreau kick and freshness. Silky, coating the palate with a perfect balance of orange zest and sweet oranges. This orange explosion brings you to an orange tree orchard. Cointreau shows an extraordinarily long finish, with gentle lingering spices and a warm mouth feel.
About the Producer:
Master Distiller Carole Quinton is the custodian of the original characteristics introduced by the liqueur’s creator Edouard Cointreau. She takes the greatest care in selecting sweet and bitter orange peels and ensures sensory memory of the unique aromatic balance of Cointreau liqueur.
The Margarita was originally created when Dallas socialite Margarita Sames mixed her two favorite spirits, Cointreau and Tequila, together with lime juice while on vacation in Acapulco back in 1948. This original Margarita recipe has stood the test of over 70 years’ time.
