The House of Marnier Lapostolle is proud to announce the release of Grand Marnier Raspberry Peach. This new flavor marks the second annual limited release blend from Grand Marnier, following the 2012 success of Grand Marnier Cherry. The Grand Marnier Signature Collection Series is a unique annual offering of Grand Marnier’s all natural fusion of fresh fruit ingredients and exotic orange essence blended with premium Cognac. A limited allocation of cases is shipped to the United States market and once the blend is sold out, it is no longer available in the US. As a result, within the next year, a new Signature Collection Blend is introduced..
This year’s Signature Collection Blend (No. 2) is Grand Marnier Raspberry Peach, which combines succulent European raspberries and rare red peaches from Ardèche in the South of France. These complementary flavors are blended with the famous Grand Marnier orange essence and the same blend of premium quality Cognacs – sourced from the best crus of the Cognac region and aged in French oak barrels – used to craft the original Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge. Its rich, complex and fruity taste has a distinctive separate flavor delivery of raspberry followed by peach; exceptionally well-balanced, its finish is supported by the Cognac notes.
“We are excited to introduce Grand Marnier Raspberry Peach and to launch our second Signature Collection limited release blend,” says Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle. “With these special flavor offerings we seek to generate excitement and reward our loyal Grand Marnier consumers, while also engaging a broader audience with a truly innovative and natural taste.”
Elegantly packaged in the iconic Grand Marnier bottle shape, Grand Marnier Raspberry Peach features new clear glass to showcase the beautiful rose color of the liquid inside. The bottle also features metallic foil labeling, peach-colored ribbon and a raspberry-colored wax seal to reflect the core flavors of the expression. This stylish update to the classic Grand Marnier bottle both pays tribute to the heralded Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge that serves as the blend’s foundation, while also reflecting its modernization with this contemporary limited edition flavor.
Grand Marnier Raspberry Peach is available nationally, debuting September 2013 (SRP: $39.99 / 750ml).
