Mandarine Napoléon Liqueur is a 10-year aged cognac flavored with Mandarin orange peel, spices and herbs. Originally created for Napoléon Bonaparte, the liqueur was said to be one of his favorite drinks. The recipe was discovered by a Belgian chemist nearly a century later and he modified and began bottling it in 1892.
