Grand Marnier Cuvée du Centenaire
Grand Marnier // France
Grand Marnier Cuvée du Centenaire was first introduced in 1927 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the House of Marnier Lapostolle. Like the flagship Grand Marnier bottling, this is a blend of cognac and bitter orange distillate. However for this bottle, only XO cognacs from Grande and Petite Champagne crus are used.
Fruit LiqueursFruit(s) is the the dominant flavor for the liqueur. Often, but not always, the primary fruit flavor will be listed on the bottle. And sometimes the fruit will be listed in French. The base spirit is often neutral spirit, but other liquors such as brandy can be used. Sugar is added before bottling. ABV varies widely.

"On the nose, juicy and floral orange meld with rich hints of cognac. On the palate, honeyed and candied orange flavors are lifted and given depth thanks to the beautifully blended and aged base. It's balanced and full all the way through, leaving lingering flavors, both bright and rich. While this could be used in a cocktail, it’s more suited for sipping on its own to be savored."
