According to this article, there really isn't much to Grand Marnier: http://www.diffordsguide.com/class-magazine/read-online/en/2011-05-10/page-9/

"Grand Marnier's unique flavour comes from Cognac and orange peels - there are no herbs or spices added" I guess there's your answer. In your defense, they also say "It is so rich in subtle nuances that it's hard to believe all these flavours come from so few ingredients" Funny how in the late 1800s, orange was considered "an exotic, expensive fruit"

According to the article posted: its only ingredients are: "Cognac, Citrus Bigaradia orange peel, sugar and water.
they make their own subtle bitters from the orange peels" sounds right to me!
