La Grande Josiane is an Armagnac and orange flavoured liqueur made by Bordeneuve Chateaux & Collections (previously known as Adex-Maison de l’Armagnac) who are famous for Chateau Bordeneuve and Baron de Sigognac Armagnac. We have supplied many of their vintage Armagnacs and also sell their very good 10 and 20 year old Armagnacs.
La Grande Josiane is made from 100% natural ingredients and is made by blending Chateau Bordeneuve Armagnac and extract of Bigararde oranges (also known as bitter or Seville oranges) together and the resulting liqueur is then left to age in oak barrels for the flavours to co-mingle, mellow and integrate to produce this soft, smooth orange brandy liqueur. It is characterised by orange flavours (obviously), caramelised oranges, honey and spices.
La Grande Josiane is available to buy Fareham Wine Cellar
This great orange brandy liqueur can be served as an aperitif over ice or as a traditional after-dinner digestif. It is also a great cocktail ingredient and is famously used in Gascony to create a “Pousse Rapière” cocktail. It is made in the same way as a Kir Royale substituting the Armagnac Liqueur for the Cassis. In Gascony the local sparkling wine Vin Sauvage is used, but you can just as easily use Champagne or another sparkling white wine.
