WHAT IS COINTREAU |
Excellence is cultivated through the constant quest for perfection. Today, this tradition is continued by Master Distiller of the Maison Cointreau, Carole Quinton. Balanced. Versatile. Aromatic. Inescapable. Experience Cointreau L’Unique.
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.
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.
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.
