In 1605, martial Francois Hannibal d'Estrées gave the recipe for a so-called “elixir for long life” to a Carthusian monk. This was the beginning of the long history of Chartreuse liquor. To celebrate the 400th anniversary of this important occurrence, the Chartreuse 1605 was developed.

The green Chartreuse 1605 can best be understood as the new edition of the original elixir of long life - unlike the élixir végétal for example, which has been continually produced ever since its inception from Jérôme Maubec. Chartreuse 1605 borrows many methods used back when the original was produced. The flavor of the spirit with 56% ABV is diverse and delineated, rough and spicy, and authentic.

Chartreuse 1605 can best be enjoyed on crushed or blocked ice, or also just well-chilled.

Chartreuse

Chartreuse liqueurs are especially valuable spirits that are produced by monks at the Grande Chartreuse, the head monastery of the Carthusian religious order, in Voiron – near Grenoble, in France.

The production of Chartreuse liqueur is wound up in many secrets and myths. There are only two monks, Minister Benoit and Brother Jean-Jacques, who know the 130 various ingredients of the original recipe. Other sources relating to the original recipe are known by a third monk. We are relatively sure that ca. 1/3 of the ingredients originate in the Chartreuse region and the other 2/3 come from all over the world. All the ingredients, even including the coloring agents, used in all the charterhouse-produced liqueurs are 100% organic.

A fascinating and totally delicious drink that evokes a blend of green and yellow Chartreuse, with more concentration than you would expect from such a blend. Not equal to VEP, but somewhere in-between. It doesn't rival my favorite of many years, VEP green, but it is luscious and elegant, and a thoroughly enjoyable Chartreuse, best served frozen. Unique and quite wonderful.
