Mandarine Napoleon is a Dutch brand of fruit liquor at 38 ° based on mandarins from Andalusia and eau de vie, following a recipe from the nineteenth century. It is used in cocktails, but is also used as an ingredient in cooking.
Antoine-François Fourcroy, chemist and member of the Council of State under Napoleon Bonaparte, described in his personal notes that the Emperor enjoyed mixing oranges and tangerines in cognac, and it became customary to macerate mandarins in cognac. It is supposed that he developed from this observation, a recipe based on eau de vie and tangerine, but in the end the recipe was lost.
In 1892, Louis Schmidt, based on this information, rediscovers the recipe, and "Mandarine Napoleon Grande Liqueur Impériale" was put on the market as a mandarin liqueur. Marketed worldwide under the name of Mandarine Napoleon, it was first aired in France as the imperial mandarin liqueur. This recipe is owned by the family Fourcroy and is transmitted amongst generations of Fourcroy.
