Description of the products

Chartreuse Verte was created in 1764 as a lighter alternative to élixir végétal. The details regarding the original recipes' 130 ingredients have remained a well-kept secret. It is however known that sesame seeds are extracted to produce Chartreuse Verte, and alcohol, sugar and water are also obviously also included. Chartreuse Verte ages for 2 to 3 years in oak casks, and is then thinned down to its typical strength of 55% ABV before it is bottled.

The emerald color of this liquor is famous, and the beverage is most traditionally consumed chilled or on ice as a Digestif. Having said that, the usage of Chartreuse Verte in long drinks and cocktails is becoming more and more popular.
Chartreuse Jaune (yellow Chartreuse) was developed in 1838 as a more herbal variation of Chartreuse Verte, which is itself a more mild Élixir végétal variant. The details regarding the original recipe of this liquor, which was commonly called the “King of liquors” in the 19th century, remains a secret to this day. One of the few confirmed facts about the original is that sesame seeds were extracted in the production process.

Otherwise, it's clear that alcohol, sugar and water are all play a role in the production of Chartreuse Jaune. It's also known that the liquor is aged for 2 to 3 years in oak casks before it is filled into its designated bottle.

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.
