The perfect holiday gift

COINTREAU ANNOUNCES TWO UNIQUE HOLIDAY CREATIONS INSPIRED BY THE LUXURIANT JARDIN DES HESPÉRIDES. A COLLABORATION WITH THE DESIGN LABORATORY OF CENTRAL SAINT MARTINS

Cointreau is adding a touch of elegance and refinement to holidays. Through a collaboration with the prestigious Design Laboratory at Central Saint Martins College, the iconic brand releases two specially designed bottles, just in time for the gift-giving season. Inspired by an excursion in the luxuriant Jardin des Hesperides, this collection is a magnificent celebration of orange in all its forms.

TWO BESPOKE EDITIONS FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS

Orange Limited Edition

Orange Limited Edition

The Limited Edition is a glass marvel. Featuring etched oranges, ribbed leaves and coiled roots interspersed throughout, the monochrome design lets the warm amber color of the bottle take center stage. The traditional copper cap also gets an orange makeover, in keeping with the color scheme. The orange grove pattern is precise, modern, and refined; the elements almost appear to be in motion, guiding their viewer on a sensory journey.

The Selective Edition

The Selective Edition

A true collector’s item, The Selective Edition is an exclusive capsule release of only 1,000 bottles, featuring a gold iteration of the orange grove label. This gilded version is also a nod to the mythological “golden apple.” Topped with an ornate, perfume-inspired square cap and encased in an orange box with a fabric interior, it is the pièce de résistance of the collection. The Selective Edition is the epitome of the holiday aesthetic.

THE ORANGE, A PRECIOUS FRUIT

When he returned from the War of 1870, Edouard Cointreau embarked on a journey that would last a year. First to meet the great distillers of Europe, then to discover the best orange varieties, the subtlest aromas, the most trusted producers. He travelled through Portugal, the coasts of Africa, then India, China, and finally South America. In southern Spain, South Africa and the Caribbean, he finally found the varieties of sweet and bitter oranges he was looking for. By creating his renowned liqueur, he developed an absolute expertise in orange, revealed in all its subtlety and restored it to its former glory.

“In the four corners of the world,” according to the expression dear to Edouard Cointreau, the taste and aromatic qualities of the orange peel continues to shine thanks to the authenticity, balance, and richness of Cointreau liqueur.

Hosting a chic holiday soirée requires mastering the art of the mix, finding both the ideal company and cocktails. Cointreau brings elegance and an element of surprise, making it the secret ingredient for this year’s festivities.
