 As proof of its presence on the Titanic, a bottle of GRAND MARNIER® was found among its wreckage and is on display at the Titanic Museum.

Fortunately French Fine Foods employs somewhat more reliable shipping methods to ensure the product arrives on our shores safely, securely and in pristine condition ready to enhance your products or dishes. 

French Fine Foods is proud to be the New Zealand importer of GRAND MARNIER® and other cooking alcohols for culinary purposes.

The proud heritage of
Grand Marnier®

The GRAND MARNIER® story began in 1827 when Jean-Baptiste Lapostolle founded a distillery in Neauphe-le-Château, France that produced fruit liqueurs.

It was in 1876, when his granddaughter married Louis-Alexandre Marnier, the son of a wine-making family from the Sancerre region, that the Marnier Lapostolle family was born. GRAND MARNIER® liqueur was originally named "Curaçao Marnier". Then when inventor Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle had his friend César Ritz taste his creation, the famed hotelier suggested a new name: "GRAND MARNIER®"

"A grand name for a grand liqueur," he is reputed to have said, ignoring a trend in turn-of-the-century Paris to call everything small, or "petit". At the turn of the century, GRAND MARNIER ® was awarded numerous medals in national and international competitions (Universal Expositions in Chicago in 1893, in Paris in 1900).
GRAND MARNIER® was reputed to have been stocked on board the White Star Line’s transatlantic liners at the beginning of the 20th century.
