COINTREAU ORANGE LIQUEUR
A perfect marriage between sweet and bitter orange peels. Ready to meet the strength of the crystal clear spirit, are baskets laden with sun-dried orange peels, their intricate colors defining different orange flavors; greenish-bronze for bitter, orangey-red for sweet which yield a greater fruit intensity.
Their heady fragrance will soon be revealed by the next steps. The peels are fully dried, macerated and finally distilled in gloriously burnished red copper stills to extract every drop of the precious essential oils.
The other ingredients (alcohol, sugar and water) – which are also completely natural – give the liqueur its creamy roundness and a romatic vigor in its mouth-feel.
Like an intimate secret, the recipe itself is jealously guarded.
