Preserving terroirs

Preserving terroirs

Our challenges

Cointreau orange

Our challenges

FOR 170 YEARS, WE HAVE BEEN CREATING EXCEPTIONAL LIQUEURS BY SELECTING FRUIT OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY. 

Our raw material, the orange, grows in a complex and subtle ecosystem that we must protect in order to ensure the enduring excellence of our liqueur. By supporting our sweet and bitter orange tree producers, by helping them to adopt sustainable practices and by encouraging research, we are committed to protecting the very essence of our terroirs

Encouraging more sustainable farming practices

 

We have built a relationship of trust with producers who for years have been supplying fruit of the highest quality, essential for the production of Cointreau  liqueur. With them, and as a result of the Environmental Charter adopted by the House of Cointreau, we have started on a journey towards agriculture that is even more ethical and respectful of the soil. 57% of crops from the sweet and bitter orange trees grown for the House of Cointreau are now GlobalG.A.P. or Rainforest Alliance certified, a fundamental measure initiated by Carole Quinton, Master Distiller of the House. Our goal for 2025 is to be exclusively supplied from certified orange groves, i.e. 100% of our oranges.

“I have the privilege of preserving Édouard Cointreau’s legacy, whilst
preparing for the future.” Carole Quinton, Master Distiller
