Grand Marnier

The GRAND MARNIER story began in 1827 when Jean-Baptiste Lapostolle founded a distillery in Neauphle-le-Château (France) that produced fruit liqueurs.
But it was in 1876,   when his granddaughter married Louis-Alexandre Marnier, the son of a wine-making family from the Sancerre region, that the Marnier-Lapostolle family was born.
A connoisseur of fine cognac, Louis-Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle had the innovative idea of blending cognac with a rare variety of orange from the Caribbean: the“Citrus Bigaradia”.
At the time oranges were luxury items, consumed mostly at special occasions, like Christmas.
By combining the complexity and mellowness of cognac with the exoticismof distilled   essence of orange – according to a still-secret   recipe, Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle created GRAND MARNIER.
