Chartreuse Liqueur de Myrtilles Cl 50
Monks produce Chartreuse today as they did yesterday. They jealously guard their secret and are the only ones who know the details of production.
The liqueurs produced contain no chemical additives; the color itself comes from the plants that make them up. The 130 herbs in the recipe are steeped in a high-quality alcohol, and afterwards distilled.
After this process, a distillate of honey and sugar syrup is added for Jaune. At this point begins the long aging in oak barrels, in the beautiful cellars in Voiron.
Chartreuse, in 2015, will be 410 years old, and in 2014 Vert was 250 years old, and a special label was created for this occasion, which was sold in 2014 and is now already a collector’s item. Pharmacists of the 16th century were searching for the elixir of long life, and Chartreuse should be considered the summa of that century’s pharmaceutical experience; it actually groups together all the medicinal plants (130) then known.
To enter the Chartreuse cellars is to go back in time: there is no one aging spirits now.
Chartreuse Blueberry is a high quality liqueur. Only the small blueberries from the mountains of the Grande Chartreuse massif are used to produce it, making a distinctly full-bodied liqueur.
