Aaron sent me these pics the other day. It's a Liqueuer called "Schönbrunner Gold", a French style cognac. The “Original Schonbrunner Gold” is made according to a recipe going back to the time of Emperor Francis Joseph and contain finest distillation of oranges and French cognac, refined with 23-carat gold leaf. Now you'd think that something like this would be expensive, but to my surprise, you can pick up a bottle of this stuff for about 20 euros! You've got to wonder just how much you'd get if you fished the gold out of one of these.... I would have thought it'd be more that 20 euros, but apparently not!

Here's some photos of that gold liquor that my friend brought back from Europe. He said it was about 20 Euros for the bottle. I believe it was a schnapps of some sort - can't find much about it on Google.
