A liqueur made of rare tangerines, whose skins are macerated in grape brandy. 40 per cent alcohol by volume.
Antoine-Francois de Fourcroy had the idea of macerating mandarines in alcohol then bledning the resulting distillate with cognac. Napoleon himself was so taken with this new liqueur that he often invited Fourcroy to share a glass with him. The result? Mandarine Napolean was born. It was first bottled in 1892 and the recipe remains a closely guarded secret still held by the Foucroy family.
