Joseph Cartron’s Triple Sec Curaçao is made from the essential oils of the sweet orange (Para variety from Brazil and Florida) and bitter oranges (Bigarade from the Ivory Coast and Sicily), all selected from the best fruit farms. Only the core of the peel is kept in the processing of these essential oils, the bitter white skins are meticulously discarded.The harmonious blending of the two varieties of fruit as well as the traditional character of this recipe ensure an extreme concentration of spirit of orange of a rare intensity. The singular flavour of bitter orange is perfectly restored.
JOSEPH CARTRON’S TIP-TOP KNOW-HOW
The process used is totally artisanal and reveals the ancestral know-how of the Joseph Cartron Company. The orange essential oils and the pure alcohol are poured into the pot-still. It is then assembled and the mixture is put to heat. The pot-still used by Joseph Cartron is a pear shaped retort: its specific shape increases the concentration of the aromas. Part of the vapours rises and condensates on the cold sides of the lid, then returns as liquid to the bottom of the still where it increases its aroma content. This phenomena recurs until the top sides of the still become hot. The alcohol full of orange aromas, once evaporated and passed through the swan neck and the serpentine, becomes the spirit of orange. The slow incorporation of crystallized sugar to this spirit naturally lowers the alcohol content and develops all the fruity orange flavour.
To the eye: colourless robe, crystal-clear and very brilliant. The rivulets are fine on the sides of the glass. Viscosity is quite strong.
To the nose: the nose is fresh and airy with a certain elegance and a certain finesse. The nose remains discreet with an important perception of orange peel.
In the mouth: the texture in mouth is round and oily. Good overall harmony between surgarness, orange peel and power. A lot of finesse and a good persistence in retro-olfaction.
