Vin Mariani, or Vin Tonique Mariani à la Coca du Pérou (French: Mariani Tonic Wine with Peruvian Coca), was a tonic wine, a mixture containing coca leaves and Bordeaux wine, formulated by Angelo Mariani in 1863. At the peak of its success, the coca wine sold some ten million bottles a year; however, this was all ended relatively abruptly, as French authorities banned coca in 1910, followed by other nations, while Mariani himself passed away in 1914, effectively ending all trade of his brand.
