Made by Carthusian monks from a heavily guarded recipe, this French liqueur is produced with 130 herbs, plants and flavors, macerated in alcohol and steeped for 8 hours, and aged in oak vats for 5 years. Naturally green, with an enticing herbal quality that easily lends itself to cocktails, it received 95 points from Wine Enthusiast in 2011.

"This has been around so long it had a color named after it... Still superb after 405+ years."

Product Details

Since 1737, Carthusian monks have been making this herbal French liqueur, according to instructions described in a manuscript given to them by François Annibal d’Estrées in 1605. It name hails from the Grande Chartreuse Monastery, located in the Chartreuse Mountains in the region of Grenoble. For it, distilled alcohol is macerated and steeped with 130 herbs, plants and flowers. (The monks claim that only two members of their order know all the ingredients.) The liqueur is aged five years in oak vats for added complexity. Naturally green, with an intensely vegetal aroma and hints of clove, thyme, lemon, rosemary and cinnamon, it works well in both classic and modern cocktails.

About the Producer

Since 1737, Chartreuse has been produced by Carthusian monks in France, according to instructions described in a manuscript given to them by François Annibal d’Estrées in 1605. The name for the line of liqueurs hails from the Grande Chartreuse Monastery, located in the Chartreuse Mountains in the region of Grenoble. Since 1970, the company Chartreuse Diffusion has been in charge of bottling, packaging, advertising and selling the products, which are still prepared by two Carthusian Brothers entrusted with this mission by their Order. They work in the greatest secrecy and are the only ones who know the details of manufacturing.
