Chartreuse Yellow Liqueur Description:


Made from 130 herbs, plants and flowers gathered in the French Alps by the Carthusian monks. The exact ingredients are unknown, and have been a secret for 400 years. 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. 

'Floral violet aromas, with hints of sweet lemon and intense spices. Thick honey and blood orange flavors mix with an array of exotic spices---saffron, anise, cloves Bitter leaf and licorice finish, with a softening, sweet character.'' 

Frederick Wildman and Sons

Note Description:

Milder and sweeter than the famous Green Chartreuse, Yellow Chartreuse was introduced to the world in 1838. It also is presented in the traditional Chartreuse liqueur bottle embossed with the seal of La Grande Chartreuse. Its colour is entirely natural with no artificial flavours or preservatives. It, too, can be enjoyed neat or in a long drink.
