Grand Marnier

Grand Marnier, the luxury liqueur that is the icon of Parisian chic, is launching a modern, playful and elegant limited edition bottle in tribute to French creativity to celebrate the coming of Christmas.

This years Limited Edition bottle harks back to the Breton striped top that was introduced into France midway through the 19th century. Known as the “Marinière”, worn by sailors and popularised by Coco Chanel, it is today the symbol of Parisian chic, which is emulated all over the world today.

The couture style label looks showcases the rich history of the brand through the family crest, while the blue, white and red striped ribbon that runs around the uniquely shaped bottle reinforces Grand Marnier’s home place - in the heart of France.

The translucent quality of the brighter rouge glass bottle radiates chic sophistication and creativity, while the glossy iconic red wax seal serves as an eternal stamp of approval from its founder Louis-Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle.

Nick Temperley, head of Diageo Reserve Brands, GB said: “We are pleased to launch the limited edition bottle again this year paying tribute to French creativity”

The 2014 limited edition bottle is the perfect gift for Christmas.

It is available in luxury retailer Harvey Nichols with an RRP of £26.05 for a 70cl bottle.

The French Artist

In celebration of the new bottle, cutting edge Mixologist and Grand Marnier European Brand Ambassador, Julien Lafond has created The French Artist. A cocktail that brings together flavours which best highlight the richness of Grand Marnier and also echo the playful nature of French Creativity.
