Grand Marnier is the result of a time-honored tradition of master blenders that skillfully and carefully have passed their savoir faire onto one another since 1880. Continuing Louis-Alexandre’s legacy today, our Master Blender oversees the purchase, aging and blending of our fine cognacs, as well as the production of our bitter orange essence. Our home in Cognac is nestled atop a hill at the border of the Petite and Grande Champagne regions. Originally built as a castle in the 13th century, the Château de Bourg-Charente is where we age and blend our cognacs and distill our orange essence. This picturesque abode serves as the heart of Grand Marnier.
