Proof66 Notes

Grand Marnier cordon rouge is the well-known and essential orange liqueur blended with cognac. The Grand Marnier 1880 is part of their prized cuvee line and first launched in 2013. It is a blend of their orange liqueur with XO cognac made exclusively from Grande Champagne grapes. The bottle is gold with hand-painted accents.

Grand Marnier is still produced and run by the same family that founded it 150 years ago: the Marnier Lapastolles. It was founded in 1827 by Jean-Baptiste Lapastolle. The original name was "Curacao Marnier" but was so well-regarded by a friend that it was renamed "Grand Marnier" in the creator's honor: "A grand name for a grand liqueur." The orange liqueurs are a blend or orange flavoring with cognac. They offer various "expressions" based primarily on the age of the cognacs used for the blend.

Much less sweet than regular Grand Marnier, and much more towards the bitter orange end of things, this is a bit of a departure from the standard high-end orange liqueur or the standard Grand Marnier. If regular GM is French nobility, this is a grizzled French nobleman forced to join the French Foreign Legion because of an unspecified impropriety. He still knows how to behave in polite society -- probably better than you do -- but he also has some, how do you say, rough edges, yes?
