The Inception of Grandeza
Our search for Grandeza started small. Our founder, Bernie Garcia conceived an innovative idea for an upside-down orange liqueur sidecar bottle that could be perched on the rim of a glass. We envisioned the concept would be an effective way to evenly distribute the liqueur in a margarita and add a fresh twist to a classic cocktail.
But we didn't stop there. We believed that a great bottle deserved to be paired with an equally worthy spirit, so after a year of meticulous research and testing, Grandeza Premium Orange Liqueur was born. Our recipe is designed to beautifully complement tequila in a margarita; it doesn't overpower tequila the way cognac or brandy based orange liqueurs do.
Grandeza is masterfully crafted with the finest flavors of Mexico. Sweetened by the smooth caramel notes of organic agave nectar, it finds the perfect balance between fresh citrus flavor, bitter orange peels, and a hint of rich vanilla.
