It’s the perfect gift to pop under the tree this Christmas for the Cointreau lover in your life. 

Iconic orange liqueur Cointreau has released an exclusive Christmas gift pack and everything about it screams summer and all things festive. The pack contains a 700mL bottle of Cointreau, as well as a complimentary salt rim tray for creating the perfect margarita, all in a special decorative gift box. 

Fittingly coloured in bright orange, the salt rim tray features a lid so you can store the salt, preventing mess and waste. It’s the perfect addition to the home bar and makes adding a salt rim to cocktails a breeze.

Distilled with a combination of sweet and bitter orange peel to produce a crystal-clear spirit, Cointreau possesses a unique complexity perfect for enhancing the vibrancy of cocktails, including refreshing summer favourites like the Original or Spicy Margarita.
