Cointreau Noir, billed as The Darker Side of Cointreau, was recently launched at Sydney’s Café Del Mar at Cockle Bay Wharf.
During the evening guests enjoyed some incredible canapés while sipping special cocktails made with Cointreau. A glamorous violinist entertained the crowd prior to the evening’s highlight, the launch of Cointreau Noir by Alfred Cointreau, a member of the famous family.
During the speeches, glasses of Cointreau Noir were handed to guests so they could sample this new liqueur, which I thought had a rich cognac flavour, quite delicious, with an entirely different taste to the traditional clear Cointreau.
This new gold coloured liqueur is sure to be a favourite.
