LICOR GRAND MANIER CORDON RED 70CL.
I must explain to non-Francophiles that Cordon Rouge literally translates as red ribbon. It is the original Grand Marnier liqueur created in 1880 by Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle, and was first served at the receptions offered by Edward VII and Emperor Franz Joseph before becoming a favorite of the Russian court.
Unlike other orange liqueurs, Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge is based on Cognac, with eau-de-vie coming from the top five regions of Cognac. In fact, Cognac constitutes 51% of the content and the blend of cognacs used has an average age of three years with some as old as five years. It is surprising to find that Grand Marnier is relatively low in sugar, compared to other liquors with only 200 grams of sugar per liter.
