GSN Review: Bauchant Liqueur

Bauchant was one of the first orange liqueurs to debut in the US, coming stateside in the early 1970s. Its recipe has remained unchanged since its creation over 40 years ago. The Cognac base is a combination of VS and VSOP Cognac; while the orange flavor is derived from, a unique entry in the category, both bitter and sweet orange (most triple sec and curacao liqueurs tend to use only a single type of orange). In order to achieve the orange blossom flavor profile, Bauchant utilizes 3 different orange varieties – Andalusian, Mandarin, & Tangerine.

Bauchant Liqueur (80 proof)
Visual: Gold.
Nose: Bright, tangy orange peel nose overlaying a rich Cognac base.
Taste: Sweet orange with a balanced citrus forward character. The flavor goes well with the brandy, making this more expressive than a triple sec.
Finish: Fairly long with the orange notes taking a gradual and soft fade.
Overall: A really nice liqueur that hits all the marks we’re looking for in this style.
GSN Rating: B+
