THE EXQUISITE ESSENCE of bitter orange

ORANGE IS AN ESSENTIAL COMPONENT OF GRAND MARNIER’S UNIQUE FLAVOR, OFFERING AN INTRIGUING TASTE TO THE PALATE. IT ADDS A CERTAIN “JE NE SAIS QUOI”, A FRENCH TOUCH, MAKING IT SIMULTANEOUSLY ELEGANT AND AUDACIOUS.

THE HEAT of the sun

Oranges are carefully handpicked at their aromatic peak, while they are still green. The orange peels dry in the sun – an important process the preserves the flavor of the essential oils found in their skin. The dried peels are then sent to the distillery at our Château de Bourg-Charente location.

REFINED distillation

The quality of the peels is checked at the Château de Bourg-Charente, and the albedo is then separated from the zest. The zest is then macerated in neutral alcohol for up to eight days to draw draw the oils out. Then, through slow distillation, the flavor from each peel is concentrated and only the purest essence is retained.
