Beverages/BOLS Ballerina


I have an unopened BOLS Ballerina bottle and after alot of research I have found that there are four variations that were available Apricot Brandy, Gold Liqueur, Triple Sec & Creme de Menthe and there were a large number of these produced, The bottle I have is Mandarine Liqueur and red in colour and I cannot find any reference to this variation, would you be able to tell me if this is rare and of course worth anything.

Thank You

Hi Kris

You are right, I haven't seen many of the Mandarin bottles...but I don't think that changes the basic equation.  BOLS liqueurs are delicious, but they don't seem to be collectible---and people don't seem to pay more than about $15-20 for them.

Sorry that I can't give you more exciting news...
