Prunier Orange Liqueur & Cognac: for Sipping and Mixing Alike
Perfectly blending quality Cognac with the sweetness of orange liqueur, the Prunier Liqueur d’Orange & Cognac was first created by the cellar master at Maison Prunier some three decades ago and has remained an exclusive blend ever since. Pure orange extracts and sugar are combined with aged eaux-de-vie, chosen for their exceptional fruity aromas, and the blend is then left to age for around six months in old Cognac casks before being reduced to 40% ABV, filtered and bottled.
The House of Prunier specializes in the art of aging and blending carefully selected stocks. Unlike many other producers, they do not cultivate their own grapes; instead, they purchase directly from winegrowers and distillers all around Cognac. This way, they can select the best vintages from any cru. The notorious quality of their cellars, both at the historical site in the heart of Cognac and in Gimeux, contributes to the astonishing quality of Prunier Cognac. For five generations, this house has been perfecting the tradition of Cognac maturation and blending, exploring the unlimited possibilities of flavor that are created in this region.
Today, Cognac Prunier is owned by the son and daughter of Jean Burnez, who took over the company from his aunt when her husband Alphonse Prunier passed away in 1918 without any direct descendants.

How to Enjoy Prunier Liqueur d’Orange & Cognac
This classic liqueur can be drunk neat or on the rocks - but of course, it also shines in many cocktails like a Sidecar or Orange Spritz. Its sweet, fruity notes are a perfect match with dark chocolate desserts, poured over vanilla ice-cream with a few grated almonds or drizzled over Crêpes Suzette.
About Prunier Cognac
Steeped in tradition, Cognac Prunier is a family run firm with cellars in the heart of the town of Cognac. The house does not own its own vineyards, instead, they buy the eaux-de-vie directly from supplying vine growers and distillers each year, and then carry out the ageing process in their own cellars.
