Appearance

Cointreau is no stranger to the unexpected and its deep amber bottle conceals a visual surprise: a perfectly transparent liqueur. When mixed, the crystalline liqueur becomes opalescent, a physical testament to the high concentration of orange essence.

Aroma

Cointreau is an aromatic feat and owes this impact to a complex blend of orange peel essences. Zesty, fresh, floral, sweet… With a spectrum of more than 40 olfactive notes, Cointreau is a captivating ode to orange on its own and an enhancer of other flavors when mixed.

Taste

Cointreau’s flavor profile is a symphony of unexpected dualities: It has an instant freshness yet lingers on the palate, is a harmonious blend of nuanced notes yet remains intensely orange. In cocktails, Cointreau serves as a flavor amplifier, helping reveal the other ingredients while bringing balance, depth, and freshness to the mix.

“I have passionately thrown myself into researching this liqueur. I wanted it to have the purity of crystal and a delicately subtle flavor thanks to the perfect harmony of sweet and bitter orange peels.” - Edouard Cointreau.

What is Cointreau ?

Cointreau noir

Cointreau noir

Cointreau Noir is the result of the perfect marriage between Cointreau’s signature sweet and bitter orange peel essences and Rémy Martin’s cognac. Inspired by the Majestik, a recipe Édouard Cointreau developed in the early 20th century, the blend marries the citrus freshness of orange with the velvety caress of cognac.
