There’s a new version of Grand Marnier. The luxury French liquor recently unveiled Grand Marnier Cuvee Louis Alexandre, a V.S.O.P expression honoring the memory of Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle, the brand’s namesake.
“Cuvée Louis Alexandre is an exquisite liqueur and a fitting tribute to Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle. I was inspired by his fearless drive to push boundaries and create something truly unique,” said Raguenaud. “This expression is yet another intrepid creation from the House of Grand Marnier, ensuring we continue to twist tradition.”
Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle was the first to blend cognac with bitter orange liquor, creating Grand Marnier.
Cuvée Louis Alexandre was created by Master Blender Patrick Raguenaud, the President of the National Cognac Bureau.
A unique blend of refined V.S.O.P. cognac and Liqueur D ’Orange, Grand Marnier says the cognacs used in this premium Cuvée come from the finest growing areas in the Cognac region and are carefully aged in Tronçais and Limousin oak casks in Bourg-Charente.
Cuvée Louis Alexandre is 40% ABV (82% cognac, 18% orange liqueur). With an MSRP of $69.99, the expression will be available in select quantities nationally with the majority available in New York, Washington D.C., Florida, and Georgia.
The Grand Marnier family extends to a sophisticated range of Cuvées, including Grand Marnier Centenaire and Grande Cuvées including Grand Marnier 1880 and Grand Marnier Quintessence.
