Cointreau is no stranger to the unexpected and its deep amber bottle conceals a visual surprise: a perfectly transparent liqueur. When mixed, the crystalline liqueur becomes opalescent, a physical testament to the high concentration of orange essence. An aromatic feat and owes this impact to a complex blend of orange peel essences. Zesty, fresh, floral, sweet with a spectrum of more than 40 olfactive notes. Cointreau is a captivating ode to orange on its own and an enhancer of other flavours when mixed. The flavour 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 flavour amplifier, helping reveal the other ingredients while bringing balance, depth, and freshness to the mix.


About the Distillery

Cointreau was first created in 1875 by Édouard Cointreau in Angers, France. It is produced by the Cointreau family-owned company, which has maintained its reputation for high-quality liqueurs over generations. The recipe is based on a blend of sweet and bitter orange peels, with a meticulous distillation process that ensures the purest expression of the orange flavor.

How this product is made 

Cointreau is made from a precise combination of sweet and bitter orange peels sourced from various locations around the world. The oranges used are carefully selected to achieve the perfect balance of flavors.

The production process involves macerating and distilling the orange peels to extract their essential oils and flavors. The distillation process is conducted in traditional copper stills, a method that has remained unchanged since the liqueur’s inception. This meticulous distillation process contributes to Cointreau’s signature clarity and purity.

Once the distillation is complete, the liquid is blended with a precisely measured amount of sugar to achieve the desired sweetness level. Unlike many other orange liqueurs, Cointreau does not contain artificial additives or coloring agents, which contributes to its authentic taste and natural appearance.

Technical Details 

Cointreau offers a vibrant and zesty orange flavor that is both sweet and bitter, making it a well-balanced liqueur. The aroma is rich with the essence of fresh orange zest, while the taste is complex with hints of citrusy sweetness and a subtle bitterness that lingers on the palate. It has a smooth and silky texture that enhances its versatility in various cocktails.

Alcohol Content:
Cointreau has an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 40%, which is standard for many liqueurs.”
