L'Orangerie of Monaco

Monaco is a tiny independent city-state on France's Mediterranean coastline known for its upscale casinos, yacht-lined harbor and prestigious Grand Prix motor race. As you walk the pristine boulevards you will notice beautiful orange trees, discover a liqueur produced here in Monaco with a truly authentic taste.

Monaco is famous for its tourism, but did you know it was once an agricultural player with its citrus products shipping far and wide? During this tasty tour you will visit L'Orangerie Monte Carlo and discover how the company cultivates the area's bitter oranges to create what is considered the first 100% Monegasque liqueur.

Take a leisurely walk from the port to the facility where you will learn how the oranges are grown organically, peeled by hand, and infused using a carefully guarded recipe to produce a citrus liquor that is coveted by visitors and locals alike.

Tour the atelier with a guide and afterwards enjoy an intimate tasting session of the liqueur with a company employee. No colorings, additives or preservatives are used, allowing you to fully embrace an authentic taste of Monaco and its prized fruits. We are certain you will be wanting to take some home!

This popular and unique tour is a wonderful introduction to a magnificent country and its special citrus fruit, a true taste of a product that you will have never had before.
