L'Original Combier Liqueur d'Orange
Citrus & Triple Sec Liqueur /40% ABV / France
- Citrus & Triple Sec Liqueur
Original Combier, the world’s first triple sec, is made according to the exact specifications of a proprietary recipe created in Saumur, France in 1834 by Jean-Baptiste Combier and his wife Josephine. Over the years, many have attempted to imitate the authentic taste of Original Combier using synthetic flavoring, shortcuts in the production and distillation process, or alterations in alcohol content – all to no avail.View all products by CombierCalifornia 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.
