Cointreau recreates 112-year-old pop-up for London Cocktail Week


Cointreau Fizz

A striking bottle-shaped pop-up bar made over 100 years ago by Cointreau is being re-created for London Cocktail Week.

The Cointreau Kiosk pop-up bar will debut in the Cocktail Village at Old Spitalfields Market throughout the festival from October 3 to 9, serving up refreshing Cointreau Fizzes.

It is based on a mobile bar created in 1904 by the liqueur’s creator, Edouard Cointreau, to help promote the brand. His descendant, Alfred Cointreau – the brand’s heritage manager – will also be at the pop-up in Spitalfields to talk about his family’s famous liqueur.

Alfred said: “In 1875, pioneer Edouard Cointreau, after 10 years of research, perfected the ideal balance between sweet and bitter orange peels: Cointreau. To promote this unique, crystal clear spirit, which we’ve preserved in the iconic bottle, Edouard initiated the pop-up bar concept.

“More than 100 years later, we’re delighted to reveal this Cointreau Kiosk at London Cocktail Week and share Cointreau’s iconic cocktail.”

Cointreau is running a London Cocktail Week promotion, offering people the chance to win a Cointreau Fizz Cocktail Kit. Guests need to take a picture of themselves alongside the Cointreau Kiosk between October 3 and 9 and share it using the hashtag, #CointreauKiosk. Cointreau will announce the winner on October 10.

Cointreau will also be partnering West End store Liberty to create Café Liberty throughout London Cocktail Week. It will be presenting the Cointreau Fizz Apple and Rosemary, a refreshing mix of Cointreau, fresh lime juice, rosemary, apple slices and sparkling water.
