Cordial, Grand Marnier, 750 ml

$57.95 Excl. tax

The signature expression, created in 1880 by Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle by combining the character of cognac with the intensity of bitter orange. This refined liqueur contains 40% ABV (51% cognac and 49% orange liqueur).

Jean Baptiste Lapostolle, a distiller of fine fruit liqueurs, built what would become Grand Marnier’s first distillery in Neauphle-le-Château, a small city outside of Paris.

It was in 1876 that Julia, granddaughter of Jean Baptiste Lapostolle, married Louis-Alexandre Marnier. La Maison Marnier Lapostolle was born.

Louis-Alexandre Marnier had the eccentric idea to combine refined French cognac with a rare variety of bitter orange from the Caribbean. It was the beginning of Grand Marnier.

The story of Grand Marnier is one of loyal friendship between two audacious innovators and ambitious men, Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle and César Ritz, famous founder of the Ritz Hotel. When Louis-Alexandre created his recipe, he named it Curaçao Marnier. César Ritz came up with the name ‘Grand Marnier,’ “A Grand Name for a ‘Grand Liqueur!”
