Mandarine Napoléon (Fruit liquor)
It was Antoine-Francois de Fourcroy, Napoleon's personal physician, who had the idea to mix macerated mandarins with fine cognac. The result of this marriage is a liqueur that Napoleon himself considered one of his personal favourites, drinking it regularly. The recipe that Antoine-Francois de Fourcroy used was re-discovered in 1892 by Louis Schmidt. This is what he based the recipe for his Mandarine Napoléon on, keeping his own recipe a closely-guarded secret ever since.
Using only mandarins sourced from Sicily and Corsica, Mandarine Napoléon combines this high-quality citrus with a mix of spices. Green and black teas serve to erase that burning sensation that some liqueurs leave on the palate. Balance is achieved through the use of cloves, nutmeg, angelica, and cinnamon. All of these ingredients are distilled together before marriage with the finest aged cognac, sugar, and water. Natural colouring is achieved through the addition of carmine.
With 200 years of history under its belt, Mandarine Napoléon has remained popular for good reason. Rich and complex, the flavours of mandarin and the spices harmonise elegantly with the smooth cognac base. You can drink Mandarine Napoléon as its namesake did, neat, but it also serves as an excellent addition to any number of cocktails.
