This will be a super-short post. If you have any interest in what is happening today in France to revive and carry on the tradition of Coca Leaf tonics started by the legendary Angelo Mariani well over 100 years ago, then this is a website you MUST visit.
This link is to a semi-translated page on the website, but if you read French the original French language version of the site is much more interesting.
And it looks like these folks are initiating a very interesting program of distributors and retailers for – who knows – perhaps a revived Vin Mariani.
Except not in the good ole USA of course.
