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. 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.
This liqueur has an orange flavour with varying degrees of bitterness. It is produced clear, and can have blue, green, orange, or red colour added. The most common, Blue Curaçao is primarily used as an exotic colouring agent in cocktails and other mixed drinks.
G E Massenez has developed high quality ‘triple concentrated’ fruit crèmes. Their rich aroma make them very versatile and they can be drunk neat, over ice, in cocktails or poured on ice creams, pastries etc
