One of our reader send us this bottle: A Courvoisier V.S.O.P Old Bottle, obviously a US Army limited edition. And we love the Canada Dry can in the background…
Napoleon’s Cognac for the American army
This brandy has been in the family for several decades. It is unopened and sealed.
Also the bottom of the label says “FOR U.S. FORCES ONLY”, and “The Brandy of Napoleon”. Also Produce de France and Liquer Cognac. Medaille d’Or Paris 1889, which is an award /gold medal.
On the bottleneck label it says: By Appointment, The Late King George VI Courvoisier Ltd.
We could not identify the date. Can anyone give us information about this bottle? Was this bottle only distributed to the US army?
As usual: Background information and knowledge is more than welcome. Thanks in advance for your comments.
