To commemorate the milestone anniversary, Mandarine Napoléon has brought XO Gold Limited Edition liqueur. This luxury liqueur (made with 125-year-old Cognac) comes in 24-karat gold coated bottle. It’s so special that each bottle comes with its own gloves for handling to avoid damaging the gold exterior.
The Belgian-Cognac-based orange liqueur was first produced in the early 1900s. It is made of fine cognac that is oak-aged for 30 years and grapes from a secret location in the famous Grande Champagne. To be precise, 43-percent of this liqueur is cognac which is mixed with a distillate crafted from mandarin peels that are macerated and blended with the 27 enriching herbs and spices. The end result is a fresh, soft mandarin flavored liqueur.
Annually, only 2000 bottles of XO Grande are produced. However, the Gold version of XO Grande is much more limited – as only 125 bottles of XO Gold will be made worldwide. So, don’t expect it to come cheap – it’s priced at €1,892 (approx. US $2,245).
Wondering what makes it so special? Well, it will contain the cognac exclusively served for Napoléon Bonaparte in the 19th century. Moreover, this brandy is mixed with secret herbs and spices, including oak and dark chocolate. It gives you a tangerine taste and slightly spicy aftertaste. Plus, this high-end liqueur is placed in a 24-karat gold bottle. What else do you need to drink like a real royalty?
