What makes Cointreau the bartender’s secret weapon is its incredible spectrum of more than 40 aromatic notes. These act as a 'flavour amplifier', helping to reveal the other ingredients, bringing balance, depth and unrivalled freshness to the mix. As Margarita Sames, the inventor of the world’s favourite cocktail, the Margarita, famously remarked, “A Margarita without Cointreau isn't worth its' salt."
Since its creation in 1848, Cointreau has embodied the pioneering spirit and meticulous craftsmanship of our founder, Édouard Cointreau.
Cointreau is a captivating ode to orange on its own and an enhancer of other flavours when mixed. Understanding these notes and their subtle interplays adds another level to your cocktail mastery. And now, you can explore the full range of these flavours for yourself with the COINTREAU L'UNIQUE AROMA WHEEL.
