Chartreuse Green Liqueur Description:


Made from 130 herbs, plants and flowers gathered in the French Alps by the Carthusian monks. The secret method of preparation is shared by three Carthusian brothers and is protected by vows of silence. The mixture is macerated with a neutral alcohol spirit and distilled by the monks before being aged in oak casks for about 5 years in their Voiron cellars. 

''Intensely floral and herbal. Myriad aromas and flavors attack the senses: cloves, angelica, fennel, citrus, thyme, rosemary, hyssop, cinnamon, mace, pine...and each time you sip it, you notice something new!'' 

Frederick Wildman and Sons

NOTE DESCRIPTION:

Green Chartreuse is the only liqueur in the world with a completely natural green color. It is powerful and unique. Only three monks know the identity of the 130 plants, how to blend them and how to distill 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. To bring out all its flavour, it should be consumed very cold, even on the rocks. Traditionally considered an after dinner drink, Chartreuse is more and more being enjoyed as a long drink.

Wine Enthusiast: 96-100 Points

Invented by the Carthusian Order of Christian monks in Grenoble, France in the 1760s. Pale green-yellow color. Mesmerizing, multilayered, complex bouquet includes scents of licorice, anise, violets, spearmint and basil. On 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.
