Color Vibrant amber hues and copper reflections when light plays on its texture. Aroma Fresh, lively and delectable, lovely orange notes followed by fruity, floral and heavier notes of almond and vanilla.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Brilliant burnt orange/bronze color. The aroma offers zesty fragrances of clementine and mandarin oranges, black pepper, candied orange peel. Taste profile is supple, crisply acidic, tangy, fresh, and gracefully elegant. Aftertaste is long, oily, pleasingly spirity, more semisweet than flat-out sweet. Lovely from beginning to end. (Mar 2015)

Created in 2011, Quintessence is made with the most precious cognac from the private reserves of the Marnier-Lapostolle family. GRAND MARNIER Cellar Master Patrick Raguenaud has carefully selected very rare cognacs coming exclusively from Grande Champagne, the most prestigious growing area of Cognac. He then blended these outstanding eaux-de-vie with very old cognac from the family Paradis, their private cellar. These cognacs date back to 1906. This rare and unique blend of cognacs is then combined with unique double distilled Citrus Bigaradia orange essence resulting from a time honored secret GRAND MARNIER process. Instead of being macerated in neutral alcohol, oranges are macerated in a very aromatic orange essence before being distilled. The result is a very subtle essence, the quintessence of orange distillation. The blend of cognac and orange essence is then aged in French oak casks, so that the flavors can mature together; reach the perfect balance and the quintessential taste.

The House of Marnier-Lapostolle (HOML) is one of the last family-owned and operated companies in the beverage industry. HOML has practiced the art of blending and aging Cognacs for over 150 years. Today, HOML is managed by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her father, Jacques - the 5th and 6th generations of the family. Their famous Grand Marnier Liqueur was created in 1880 by Louis Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle, crafted with a blend of aged Cognacs and Caribbean oranges.
