BOLS Triple Sec.


Triple sec was originally called Curacao triple sec. Triple sec is an orange flavored liqueur made from dried peels of better and sweet oranges.
Most often used as an ingredient in a variety of cocktails. Triple sec was invented some time between 1934 and 1949 in Saumur, France.
The liqueur became widely known in 1878. It was at the Exposition Universelle of 1878 in Paris, with several distillers offering curaco triple sec.
