This special blend of Grand Marnier was created in 1927 by Louis-Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the company’s foundation. It was first served at a reception held at the Villa des Cèdres, the former home of King Leopold II of Belgium, on the Côte d’Azur.
The Cognacs used are from Cognac's top two crus: Grande and Petite Champagne-their average age between 12-25 years (equal to the best XO Cognacs), although some are as much as 30 years old. Cuvée du Centenaire comprises of an incredible 82% Cognac and contains 237 grams of sugar per litre.

Each completed batch of Cuvée du Centenaire is matured in large oak casks for at least two years to fully acquire its harmonious structure and finesse.

Cuvée du Centenaire is not widely distributed, but can be found in more upscale retail outlets as well as the best hotel and restaurants bars around the world.

Review and Tasting

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber with burnished copper tones.

Aroma:

A huge burst of rich orange zest on the nose with leathery cognac and subtle cinnamon, pepper and turmeric spice aromas.

Taste:

Opulently velvety, honeyed palate with caramelised orange, candied and dried orange peel, woody vanilla, bitter marmalade, gingerbread and subtle spice – turmeric, nutmeg and mild tobacco.

Aftertaste:

Citrus flavours continue through the finish with cinnamon, gingerbread, balsamic, oak and bitter almond flavours.
