Giffard Pacifico Triple Sec 70cl: A Burst of Sunshine in a Bottle

The General Wine is proud to offer Giffard Pacifico Triple Sec, a versatile orange liqueur perfect for crafting classic cocktails or adding a touch of citrus sunshine to your favourite drinks. This detailed tasting note explores the flavour profile, aroma, and ideal serving suggestions to elevate your cocktail making experience.

A Legacy of Liqueur Crafting

Giffard Pacifico hails from the esteemed house of Giffard, a family-run producer based in France's Loire Valley since 1885. Renowned for their dedication to quality and innovative techniques, Giffard crafts liqueurs that are both delicious and inspiring.

Unveiling the Pacifico

Aroma:  Pour yourself a measure of Giffard Pacifico and close your eyes. The initial impression is a wave of fresh citrus, dominated by sweet and bitter orange peels. Hints of floral notes peek through, adding a touch of complexity.  This is not a one-dimensional orange liqueur; it offers a delightful interplay of aromas that pique the senses.

Taste: The first sip of Pacifico delivers a burst of orange sunshine. The sweetness is balanced by a pleasant bitterness from the Seville oranges, creating a well-rounded flavour profile. The liqueur is smooth and silky on the palate, with a touch of warmth from the 25% ABV. As the flavours develop, subtle orchard fruit notes emerge, adding a hint of depth and complexity. The finish is clean and refreshing, leaving a lingering taste of citrus that lingers on the tongue.

Serving Suggestions:

Giffard Pacifico Triple Sec's versatility makes it a valuable addition to any home bar. Here are some ways to enjoy its vibrant orange character:

  • The Classic Margarita:  This iconic tequila cocktail is a perfect showcase for Pacifico's bright citrus notes. Combine 50ml tequila, 25ml Pacifico, and 25ml fresh lime juice in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a salt-rimmed margarita glass.
  • The Cosmopolitan: This elegant pink cocktail is another popular choice for showcasing orange liqueur.  Combine 40ml vodka, 20ml Cointreau (or another orange liqueur), 20ml cranberry juice, and 10ml fresh lime juice in a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lime wedge or a twist of orange peel for a touch of sophistication.
  • Beyond Cocktails:  Pacifico's citrus character isn't limited to cocktails.  Add a splash to elevate a simple lemonade or create a refreshing summer cooler by mixing it with sparkling wine and a squeeze of fresh fruit.  For a delightful twist on a classic dessert, try drizzling Pacifico over vanilla ice cream or using it to flavour a homemade panna cotta.

The General Wine's Take

Giffard Pacifico Triple Sec is an excellent choice for cocktail enthusiasts and home bartenders alike.  Its vibrant orange flavour, balanced sweetness, and versatility make it a valuable addition to your bar cart.  Whether you're crafting a classic margarita or experimenting with new flavour combinations, Pacifico is sure to become a go-to ingredient for sunshine-filled drinks.
