Triple Sec on Wikipedia:

(May 2009) Triple Sec Type Liqueur Manufacturer (various) Country of origin Saumur, France Introduced 1834 Alcohol by volume 30% Color clear, golden Flavor orange

Triple sec is an orange-flavored liqueur made from the dried peel of oranges from the Caribbean. Its name means triple distilled.

It is widely used in mixed drinks and recipes as a sweetening and flavoring agent. Better-quality brands are made from brandy or Cognac and are often sipped alone, typically as a digestif. Some brands are colorless while others have degrees of the golden coloration of their brandy base.

History

The spirit was invented in 1834 by Jean-Baptiste Combier in Saumur, France. Original Combier triple sec is still made today using sun-dried orange skins from Saint-Raphaël, Haiti steeped in alcohol for 24 hours and distilled in 100-year-old copper-pot stills.

A form known as ``Orange Curaçao`` is made from oranges from that Caribbean island.

Alcohol content

Triple sec typically contains 30% alcohol (by volume), that is, 60 proof (US), though brands may have anywhere from 15% to 40%.[citation needed]
