Every day since the House’s creation, the same techniques have been passed down and repeated. From the selection of orange peels, chosen for the organoleptic qualities of their essences; to the harmonious blending of ingredients to achieve the ideal aromatic balance; to the grand finale, the distillation in 19 custom copper alembics just like those used by Édouard Cointreau over a century ago. Today, Master Distiller Carole Quinton is the guardian of Cointreau’s rich savoir-faire.
“My main goal is to perpetuate the original flavor of Cointreau liqueur, the one created by Édouard Cointreau.” Carole Quinton, Master Distiller
THE ART OF MIXOLOGY
It’s official: Mixology has become an art form and the world can’t get enough. Whether enjoyed at sleek Scandinavian counters, in a comfy living room in Buenos Aires, in buzzing nightclubs in Shanghai, or at a restored Chicago speakeasy—savoring a cocktail is an experience.
And Cointreau has proven itself the perfect cocktail complement. From the Sidecar to the Cosmopolitan, the liqueur has been featured in over 500 recipes since its creation, and counting.
