Plan to open their own business, he wanted to create original drinks based on natural fruits and cognac. In 1876, son of Jean-Baptiste - Eugene Lyapostol marries Julia, the daughter of a wine merchant, Louis-Alexandre Marnier.

The company began to engage in the production of original liqueurs, an innovative idea which was based on the creation of technology blending brandy and citrus fruit imported from the Caribbean.
