Rumoured to be the first ever clear triple sec style orange liqueur, this bottling was first produced by candy-makers Jean-Baptiste Combier and his wife back in 1834.
The liqueur is made using orange skins from the Haitian commune of Saint-Raphaël, which have been dried in the sun. These dried citrus skins are steeped in alcohol for a day, then triple distilled in copper pot stills, which are over a century old.
The final result is a crystal clear liqueur which pours a little syrupy. Combier offers up notes of bitter orange rind, caramelised orange slices, cooked citrus fruit, some beeswax, a little nuttiness, and some subtle floral undertones. Dry, despite its syrup-like texture.
A perfect fit for any cocktail requiring an orange liqueur.
