A reader has an interesting bottle of Courvoisier Grande Fine Champagne Napoleon – The Brandy of Napoleon.
The bottle is located in At my house. Poland Gdansk. The Reader writes “I bought it occasionally in Shanghai where I lived in the years 1964-1966 at the time “of Cultural Revolution”. Red Guards activities forced Chinese, under penalty of prosecution, to get rid of any possessed goods which were connected with “western capitalism”.
I am the owner of the cogniac for 50 years (for sure). I dont known how long it was in possession of the Chinese.”
