The product is a blend of Cointreau orange liqueur and Rémy Martin cognac and it was created by Bernadette Langlais, master distiller of the House of Cointreau and Pierrette Trichet, cellar master at Rémy Martin.
Matthew Hodges, marketing & business development director, Rémy Cointreau GTR said: “Cointreau Noir marks a rare partnership between these two historic houses which have combined their talents to produce a new liqueur. Cointreau Noir is a sultry dark version of the orange liqueur we know and love – the blend of Cointreau with cognac seems to add depth which we believe will appeal to dark spirits connoisseurs as well as lovers of cocktails like Cointreau Fizz.”
Cointreau Noir will be launched first in travel retail in the Americas this autumn followed by Asia and Europe. It is 40%abv.
