    One of the liqueur immortals, Chartreuse Green Liqueur is the product of monks from the Carthusian order who originated the product at their establishment in the French Alps called “Grande Chartreuse”.

    Chartreuse is inextricably tied to the Carthusian Order of monks. Bruno of Cologne (later to become St. Bruno) founded the order in 1084 after giving up an affluent life in Reims, France. In 1605 the French Artillery Marshall to the King, Hannibal d’Estrees, presented to the Carthusians a mysterious manuscript containing the formula for an “Elixir of Long Life”.

    In 1737, as the result of lengthy endeavours, Brother Jerome Maubec succeeded in manufacturing for the first time what is still called “The Herbal Elixir of the Grand-Chartreuse”. Two decades later, Green Chartreuse was created using the same recipe used today. Yellow Chartreuse was created in 1838 by another Brother, Bruno Jacquet – a milder and sweeter version of the famous Green Chartreuse.

    Chartreuse’s popularity grew and the production was later moved from the monastery at La Grande Chartreuse to the Fourvoirie Distillery, which was unfortunately destroyed by a landslide in 1935. Since then Chartreuse has been manufactured in Voiron, France.

    Green Chartreuse is the only liqueur in the world with a completely natural green colour. Only two Chartreuse monks know the identity of the 130 plants, how to blend them and how to distil them into this world famous liqueur. They are also the only ones who know which plants they have to macerate to produce the natural green and yellow colours. And they alone supervise the slow ageing in oak casks.

    Vibrant Aromas of spices, herbs, and soufflé. A lively entry to a sweet full body with intensity warming peppercorn and oil. Finishes with a long, lingering subtle spice, herb, and pepper fade.

    “Pale green-yellow colour. Mesmerizing, multi-layered, complex bouquet includes scents of licorice, anise, violets, spearmint and basil. On the palate, it’s very spirity, with sweet tastes of candied banana, key lime pie and peppermint. Finishes mellow, herbal and minty. A one-of-a-kind legend” Wine Enthusiast
