In 1605 François Hannibal d'Estrées, presented the recipe for an 'Elixir of Life' to the Carthusian monks. Using over 130 different herbs & spices, the recipe was so complex that it took the monks well over a century to figure it out - production was not begun at the monastery until 1737. This special edition Chartreuse was created in 2005, 400 years later, and is a recreation of the original recipe bottled at the slightly lower strength of 56%.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    Nose: Not what I was expecting; it has the herbaceousness of the Elixir Végétal, but with the sweeter notes of the Yellow, which mask the pungency.

    Palate: A liquid herb garden with basil, dill, aniseed, ginger, tarragon, eucalyptus and caraway – simply stunning.

    Finish: Long, with a welcome minty freshness.

    Comment: Mellow on the nose, this explodes on the palate with a freshness unlike any other liqueur I’ve tried. Despite the high strength, this isn’t apparent on the palate as everything is so well balanced.

    Serving suggestion: This is the cleanest Chartreuse for me and doesn’t need anything adding. Eminently drinkable neat, just serve chilled or over crushed ice.
