- Tasting Notes
Bursting with orange citrus flavor, Giffard Triple Sec is an essential ingredient for the perfect Margarita. Giffard Triple Sec is made with the same care and precision that the Giffard family has employed for five generations, since 1885. Offered in a one-liter bottle designed for the home bartender and clocking in at 35% abv, Giffard Triple Sec captures the perfectly balanced essence of both sweet and bitter orange peel. To craft this classic liqueur, Giffard uses neutral spirit and sugar, both obtained from sugar beets, in combination with orange distillate and a small amount of lemon essence, to achieve the perfect blend of citrus notes.View all products by GiffardCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Edouard-Jean Cointreau crafted his own style of the sought-after triple sec product with a higher ABV and more forward orange flavor; Cointreau’s liqueur is the best-known triple sec in the world today.
Other well-known orange liqueurs include Blue Curaçao, (a Dutch liqueur that uses lahara fruit peels and blue food dye) and Grand Marnier (a French creation that combines Cognac brandy and bitter orange liqueur).
Most orange-flavored liqueurs are affordable and easy to find, and you can opt for any orange liqueur in lieu of triple sec in your preferred cocktails.
Like so many other liqueurs, triple sec’s success can be credited to the French — in the early 19th century, a confectioner named Jean-Baptiste Combier and his wife Josephine experimented with steeping exotic Caribbean orange peels in sugar cane alcohol. The resulting liqueur, called “triple sec,” actually applies more to the triple distillation process than the specific product.
