Cointreau is a brand of triple sec, or orange-flavoured liqueur, known for its premium French triple-sec liqueur created from sweet and bitter orange peels. The Cointreau distillery was founded in 1849, where two brothers Edouard-Jean and Adolphe Cointreau saw the need for naturally flavoured liqueurs of higher quality. Driven by growing customers’ interests in oranges, Edouard continuously experimented to create the perfect blend of bitter and sweet orange peels which led to the birth of the original Triple Sec known as Cointreau.
Distilled through traditional methods, Cointreau delivers complex and balanced flavours with natural orange aromas. Due to its unique flavour profile, it is recognised today as a key ingredient in several well-known cocktails creations such as Margarita and Cosmopolitan. The brand also released another premium-quality spirit, the Cointreau Noir comprising of its signature orange flavour mixed with cognac for an indulgent experience.
