Green Chartreuse - Large


Created in 1840, “Chartreuse Verte” or Green Chartreuse, derives its unique character from its natural green color, its power and its aromatic complexity from 130 plants, flowers, bark, roots and spices which are carefully blended, distilled, and aged by the Carthusian Monks of La Grand Chartreuse near Grenoble, France. The nose is intense, peppery and herbaceous and the palate is refreshing with hints of mint, pine sap, and citrus peel. Bittersweet tea notes persist at the finish. This is a classic digestif to enjoy chilled, neat or over ice, or as an ingredient in cocktails such as the Bijou or Last Word.


Created in 1840, the "Liqueur de Santé" is the first liqueur made from the original recipe of the Elixir Végétal de la Grande Chartreuse, made by Carthusian monks from an alchemical manuscript presented to the order in 1605. 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).
