Beginning in 1849 (Angers, France), La Maison Cointreau found life through the Cointreau brothers, who saw a market for high-quality, naturally flavored liqueurs. After experimenting with oranges, the brothers crafted the now-infamous blend of bitter and sweet orange peels. It was debuted at The World’s Fair in Paris in 1889 as the Triple-Sec. It was recognized all over the world and awarded immensely. The passion, quality, and recognition behind the Triple-Rec live on as it is now called, simply, Cointreau.
Cointreau Blood Orange offers a new take on the original Cointreau. Cointreau Blood Orange was made possible with one singular tree in the orange groves of the Mediterranean island of Corsica. The Mediterranean breeze and rugged soil give the blood oranges intense aroma and exquisite taste that is captured by distillation. The nose offers crisp and fresh aromas with a distinct citrus zest that adds to the complex taste of the different orange varieties. Cointreau Blood Orange is best enjoyed in a refreshing Cointreau Rouge. Pour ½ Cointreau Blood Orange and ½ cranberry juice over ice with a slice of orange.
