GREEN CHARTREUSE
Created in 1840, the "Liqueur de Santé" is the first liqueur made from the original recipe of the Elixir Végétal de la Grande Chartreuse. It was so popular that Father Garnier, attorney and responsible for the liqueurs at the time, later decided to officially name it 'Chartreuse Verte', and registered the “Chartreuse” mark in 1852. It is still produced and manufactured today by the Chartreux Fathers in their Aiguenoire distillery in Entre-Deux-Guiers (Isère - France).

Ingredients
Alcohol, sugar, water, vegetable substances (130 plants, bark, roots, spices and flowers).


Wine Enthusiast

95 Points, Wine Enthusiast: [Top 50 Spirits of 2011] "This light green liquid features musky, herbal and botanical aromas: star anise, tarragon, basil and Dutch licorice. Flavors are bold and sweet, with a slight earthiness and alcohol heat. Finishes sharp, herbal, grassy, floral and complex. Thick and viscous. A classic for gin-based cocktails." 02/11

 

Producer Notes: "With hundreds of years of tradition and history, Chartreuse comes from a breathtaking, remote mountain monastery high in the French Alps. Produced as an act of devotion by the Carthusian order of monks, it’s now consumed in a similar act of devotion by many Americans! The formula for Chartreuse is complex and varied, including over 130 different types of mountain flowers, herbs, roots, and other botanicals. To maintain the historic secrecy, the formula is known only in part and only to three monks so that no single person is in possession of the entire recipe.

Today Chartreuse liqueur has become a cult classic. Bartenders and mixologists across the country are constantly concocting fun, innovative drinks using this distinctive liqueur.

A Chartreuse green color, a powerful herbaceous, peppery nose. A fresh palate with minty notes, pine sap and citrus fruits. Bittersweet tea at the end of the mouth prolongs the tasting."
