Triple Sec – King of Orange Liqueurs

“Triple dry” or “Triple Sec” is the name of a drink that belongs to a wonderful line of “magic potions” called orange liqueurs. Many eminent manufacturers are engaged in its production, whose products are very popular all over the world. An excellent quality product is offered to lovers of sweet alcohol by our company Brandbar.


Despite the amazing citrus aroma and pleasant sweetness, “Triple Sec” Branbar can be attributed to the group of strong alcoholic products. The alcohol content in it reaches 40%. And this, you see, is quite a lot.

But the peculiar alcoholic bitterness is practically not felt. It is completely absorbed by the irresistible fruity component. After all, to create a perfect bouquet, only the natural zest of selected ripe fruits, maximally saturated with essential oils, is used.

Another feature of this amazing drink is that in addition to the usual maceration, that is, infusion, distillation or distillation, as this process is also called, is also involved in the production. In Triple Sec, the infusion is triple distilled.

A fairy potion is filled with a light sweetness thanks to the addition of sugar. This combination of components results in a slightly rough and oily body, harmonious, balanced taste, transparent, crystal clear color.
