The promising title of this recipe manuscript, from which the monk and pharmacist Jérôme Maubec developed the élixir végétal in 1737, bears the following words: “Elixir for long life”.

The drink would certainly not be sold with such a name today, thanks to legal restrictions and the like. But the drink was in fact used a medicinal tonic in the past, until it gradually became an established 'pleasure beverage' over time.

The monks of the grand charter-house have not stopped improving the recipe for their élixir végétal, while still remaining true to the original manuscript with its 130 various ingredients. The last significant change in the recipe is due to an EU regulation. Until recently, the essence was distilled to its full strength of 71% ABV. But since 2010, there are new regulations restricting the transport and aging of alcohol products with more than 70% alcohol by volume. For this reason, the monks of the grand charter-house chose to thin their traditional liquor down to 69% ABV.

There are various ways to consume Élixir végétal: you can include a few drops in sugar water, on a sugar cube, in tea or in grog. Otherwise, the elixir should help with illness, fatigue and a general lack of wellness when mixed with hot water.

Chartreuse

Chartreuse liqueurs are especially valuable spirits that are produced by monks of the Carthusian order in the grand charter house of the monastery, 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.

This company is great! My bottle only took a couple weeks to reach me and it came in a nifty wooden case to keep it safe from exposure and breaking. Plus, while it was shipping, I was sent emails detailing facts about absinthe, which made the wait more enjoyable, and the absinthe itself more satisfying!

Was having trouble finding this product until I stumbled upon it on Absinthes.com. Reasonable price and outstanding service. As for the elixir itself, it's a very interesting little potion. Like regular green Chartreuse, but much stronger and with a bit of an aged wood aftertaste. I'd definitely recommend making it into a grog; save traditional Chartreuse for sipping or mixing!

Your delivery was prompt and I use this product as a energy stimulant. I take 8 drops twice a day. I believe it keeps on healthy.

Everyone needs to be skeptical when purchasing things online, but you can rely on absinthes.com. Shipping to CA from Europe took about a week, and it's difficult to wait without tracking info, but the wait was well worth the rare product. I'll definitely order from them again.

Very spicy but lovely to sip. Perfect as a mixer, with a little sugar water, or with some tea. It's fun to sip on a few drops straight as well to get the full experience.
