This liqueur has an orange flavour with varying degrees of bitterness. It is produced clear, and can have blue, green, orange or red colouring added, the most common blue Curaçao is primarily used as an exotic colouring agent in cocktails and other mixed drinks.
Curaçao is a liqueur flavoured with the dried peels of Larahas, a type of bitter orange grown on the island of Curaçao. A non-native plant, Larahas developed from Valencia oranges transplanted by Spanish explorers. While Valencias are sweet, the nutrient-poor soil and arid climate of Curaçao changed the fruit's taste, creating the Laraha. Initially discovered by accident, the drink was first developed and marketed by the Senior family (a Jewish family from Curaçao) in the 19th century. To create the liqueur, the peels of the Laraha are dried, bringing out their sweetly fragranced oils. After soaking in a still with alcohol and water for several days, the peels are removed, and other spices are added.
G.E Massenez has developed high quality 'triple concentrated' fruit crèmes (liqueurs). Their rich aroma makes theme very versatile and they can be drunk neat, over ice, in cocktails or poured on ice creams, pastries, etc.
