Produced in Voiron, France from a mixture prepared by Carthusian monks, the historic Chartreuse recipe was first given to the monastery in 1605 by King Henri IV, although the first batch did not come out until 1737. Based on an ancient manuscript "Elixir of Long Life,” the recipe included over 130 herbs, flowers and secret ingredients, with complicated processes for distillation, infusion and maceration. Still prepared by two Carthusian Brothers entrusted with this mission by their Order and distilled and manufactured in complete secrecy, the recipe of this historical elixir still remains a mystery and yet to be replicated.
Chartreuse Green is an intensely floral and herbal liqueur with notes of mint, cloves, thyme, lemon, rosemary and cinnamon followed by a smooth, long lasting finish. Becoming a favorite ingredient with mixologist all around, we say have some fun and experiment with cocktails based in Gin and Tequila.
