A limited edition of Mandarine Napoléon liqueur, created to celebrate the drink’s 125th anniversary, has gone on sale for the eye-watering sum of nearly €2,000.

The special-edition Mandarine Napoléon XO Gold is cased in a 24-carat gold bottle and retails at the symbolic price of €1,892 (£1,666.12), to mark the year the drink was first produced.

Only 125 bottles of the liqueur, a distillate of Sicilian mandarins blended with 125-year-old Grande Fine Champagne Cognac, have been produced.

Serve neat

Every bottle of the mandarin-infused liqueur also contains a harmonious touch of cognac from 1892: the year Mandarine Napoléon was first available to the public.

It is recommended that the drink is served neat or on the rocks to experience the delicate subtleties of its flavour.

Fidel Castro rum

In July, a Cuban rum originally blended solely for the personal consumption of Fidel Castro went on sale in the UK for a price of £499.

For 50 years, the rum was blended for Castro alone, before being gifted to visiting international dignitaries and senior members of Cuban government. It was only recently made commercially available, with production very limited.
