Cointreau was created by Edouard Cointreau in 1875 after noting consumers’ interest in the flavour of orange, a rare and expensive commodity at the time. He travelled the world and continuously experimented with recipes and distillation processes until he created the perfect blend. The clear liqueur was born out of the inspired idea to combine sweet and bitter orange peels. This particular blend gives Cointreau its unique and delicate taste, the perfect balance of sweetness and freshness. The Cointreau recipe is simple, natural, and unchanged since its creation. Its character and excellence lie in the rigorous selection and assembly of the orange peels, a meticulous task entrusted to Maison Cointreau’s Master Distiller.
