Win a dressed-up bottle of Grand Marnier

Grand Marnier can be enjoyed naked or dressed up this Christmas as the iconic orange and Cognac brand launches its 2008 limited -edition bottle.

"Cosiness is the theme as

the naked, diva-like shoulders of a Grand Marnier bottle emerge from an opulent red fur collar and nubuck coat adorned with a vibrant metal label," a spokesman says.

"The warm tactile materials cry out to be touched, while the aromas of orange and

Cognac demand it be tasted. The smooth and soft red coat is designed to be removed to reveal the elegant rounded bottle, so that Grand Marnier can be

appreciated naked or dressed up."

The audacious special bottle is designed to create a new perception of the classic liqueur which can be drunk as a traditional digestif,

on ice, or as a festive aperitif cocktail.

Over the years, the bottles have become eagerly sought after by collectors. Only one thousand of the new design will be available in the UK from premium retailers. But one

reader will be able to win a Cosy bottle by answering this question:

What famous French spirit is at the heart of Grand Marnier?

Send your answer, with your name and address and telephone number, by Oct 31, to: OLN competition, Motivity, Box 426, Hayes, Middlesex
