With a recipe that has remained a closely guarded secret since 1827, Grand Marnier originated in a distillery in Neauphle, a tiny commune near Versailles west of Paris. The founder Jean-Baptiste Lapostolle was a noted connoisseur who created the unique recipe by blending cognac with a unique variety of orange from the Caribbean known as 'Citrus Bigaradia'.

    In modern times, Grand Marnier is France's most widely exported liqueur, providing discerning chefs with an intense flavour kernel for hand made chocolates, gelato, jams, cakes and brownies. It plays a starring role in the sauce of 'Canard à l’Orange' and Crêpe  Suzette. Grand Marnier products are just some of a broad selection of alcohols specially formulated for food manufacture and commercial kitchens.

    Commercial applications worldwide encompass both sweet and savoury foods, including flambés and indulgent ice creams. French Fine Foods is able to supply manufacturers with unique cooking-only
formulations of Grand Marnier in sizes up to 20 litres, providing a commercially-viable ingredient to help you secure a profitable niche in a lucrative marketplace.
