Developed as an homage to Grand Marnier’s founder – the man who uncovered the magic of blending fine Cognac with oranges – this fresh rendition of Cuvée Louis-Alexandre is a blend comprised of 82% VSOP Cognac and 18% bitter and aromatic bigaradia orange liqueur. The result is a rich and smooth drink which stands tall and proud among its Grand Marnier siblings, excellent for sipping over ice, or even adding elegance, depth and a touch of luxury to cocktails.
The spirit in Cuvée Louis-Alexandre is distilled at Grand Marnier’s Chateau de Bourg-Charente and other local distilleries in Cognac, France. It is also aged at the Chateau in Troncais and Limousin oak casks, before being meticulously blended.

A world of luxury
It was Grand Marnier founder Louis-Alexandre Marnier who, in 1880, flung convention aside and discovered the joyful harmony to be found between fine Cognac and exotic, bittersweet oranges. His legacy has been a lasting one – Grand Marnier liqueurs have been enjoyed for well over a century, both neat and as staples of the international cocktail scene, always recognisable in their iconic bottle, almost unchanged since 1892.
