Description of the products

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 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.
