The macerated bitter orange peel is the same fruit used in the other variants of Grand Marnier, but this time they employ a unique double distillation, whereas it is usually distilled just once. Rich amber tones, Well-balanced, elegant aroma, Harmonious combination of cognac and orange, Harmonious, elegant taste, Lovely lingering finish on nuances of macerated orange. Grand Marnier can be consumed "neat" as a cordial or a digestif, and can be used in mixed drinks and desserts. It is frequently used in recipes for cranberry sauce, as sweetness and citrus can be a contrast to the bitterness of cranberries. It is also an ingredient for the preparation of flambé dishes. In France this kind of use is the most popular, especially with Crêpes Suzette and "crêpes au Grand Marnier".

A special edition of Grand Marnier celebrating the 100th anniversary of the creation of the company by founder Jean-Baptiste Lapostolle.
In 1870, the grand-nephew of Jean-Baptiste, Louis-Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle
invented a liqueur that blended an alcohol extraction of Bigarade oranges from
the Caribbean, Cognac, and sugar syrup, and called it Grand Marnier. Slow ageing
in French oak casks gives it incomparable roundness and subtlety. It became a
popular part of French cooking – Escoffier used it to make Crepes Suzette.
