Created in 2011, Quintessence is made with the most precious cognacs from the private reserves of the Marnier Lapostolle family. Grand Marnier® Cellar Master Patrick Raguenaud carefully selected extremely rare cognacs sourced exclusively from Grande Champagne, the most prestigious growing region of Cognac. He blends a unique collection of cognacs including some more than 100 years old, from the family’s private cellar, Paradis. This delicious mingling of history is then combined with the unique double-distilled wild tropical orange essence. The final blend is then aged in French oak casks to allow the flavors to mature together; producing the perfect balance and quintessential taste. As the most premium offering in the Grande Cuvée Collection, Quintessence proudly holds its place as the pinnacle of excellence.
