Cointreau is the indispensable orange component to hundreds of properly-made cocktails.

The Cointreau Distillery was founded in 1849 by brothers Adolphe and Edouard Cointreau. They started with a French wild cherry Liqueur called a Guignolet which enjoyed popular success. But after a few years things really took off when they introduced the bitter-orange Liqueur that bears their name today — Cointreau. The company remained a family-owned and operated enterprise until it merged with Rèmy Martin Cognac in 1990 to form Rèmy Cointreau.

Technically, Cointreau Orange Liqueur is a form of Triple Sec — a category of strongly orange-favored Liqueurs. But it is so much more. We’d go so far as to call it the king of the category. It is made from sweet sugar-beet Spirits infused with both sweet and bitter orange zests that give it a delicate and complex citrus profile. The original recipe for a Margarita cocktail specifically called for Cointreau. And it is — in our opinion — a brilliant component of everything from Sangria to the Cosmopolitan. And the entire world agrees. Each year, more than thirteen million bottles are sold bringing joy to craft cocktail patrons everywhere.
