Liqueur Chartreuse Elixir Végétal - Herbal Elixir 69% - 10cl

This product is currently not available.
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.

Serving Suggestion

We recommend rinsing your fountain before first using it, as there may be traces of powder left from the traditional metal-casting process.

Ice can be added to the water in the reservoir, to create the perfect temperature.

Rather than emptying the fountain straight after using it, it is recommended to leave it overnight, avoiding any small risk, however rare, of thermal shock to the glass parts.

For many years now, I have added a few drops a day of Chartreuse Elixir Végétal to my libation of choice, instantly infusing my brews with history, romance, and the many gifts to be gathered from the storied fields and forests of France. I am 71 years old now and I continue to enjoy robust good health. Coincidence or proof of efficacy? Only time will tell, I suppose, but in meantime, I toast François-Annibal d'Estrées, duc d'Estrées and Jérôme Maubec of yore as well as absinthes.com the the good monks of the Grande Chartreuse of today. À votre santé.

13 Apr 2020

Élixir Végétal is all kinds of awesome I love this stuff. :)

2 Apr 2020

I don't know why people say they need this with sugar - I like it exactly the way it is! Strong but balanced, can't wait to invent some cocktails with it.

5 Dec 2019

Very concentrated herbal elixir. Tastes more herbal than regular green chartreuse with a higher proof that makes it difficult to drink straight in larger quantities. It seems you have to at least dilute this product 100% with water to take the bite out of the alcohol content. It does possess some stimulant qualities when drank in larger portions (approx. 1 ounce). Though I am not sure how much of this elixir can be consumed within a day and still be regarded as a safe dosage.

28 Oct 2019

I love this elixir! I have been taking this for about 2 years straight.

24 Jun 2019

I highly recommend this product. I have been using it for the last couple of years. I am healthy and strong! Love it!!

5 Jun 2019

Delicious!! Glad I found this and the delivery was quick too.

12 May 2019

Great. Thank you. I have been ordering this for over a year and love it. Will order again soon.

13 Nov 2018

Alles gut: Online-Shop, Lieferung, Produkt. Danke.

28 Aug 2018

Thanks- we’ll order again. Elixir Végétal is a lovely thing!

16 May 2018

This is the Chartreuse to take for medicinal purposes. I've had a few snorts, and I feel better already!

13 May 2018

Excellent and speedy delivery of product.
Elixir vegetal is a potent and delightful liqueur, refreshing and unique.

19 Apr 2018

Excellent elixir. Was given this as a gift but soon found out it is not available in the USA. Return customer. This time I'm buying as gifts for friends. Elixir Vegetal is always well received and appreciated. Absinthes.com has great prices and fast delivery. Thank you

30 Jan 2018

Thank you I'm really enjoyed the jade absinthe. Would like to try others

21 Nov 2017

Très bon et très efficace en revanche je ne comprend pas le import Hambourg écrit sur la bouteille de l'image.

14 Nov 2017

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!

6 Nov 2017

Great Product...feel the umph!! kick in straight away

26 Oct 2017

Product received within time mentioned. Service was excellent and product is powerful. I will be ordering before January to take advantage of the unexpected and much appreciated $10 coupon. Un gros merci!

25 Oct 2017

Unique and superior Elixir. Great source for a difficult to find product.

25 Oct 2017

Wonderful Product...Arrived in a timely manner... I will definitely be ordering more from this wonderful company.

19 Oct 2017

I will only say one word: Delicious!!!

29 Sep 2017

Très bon produit

5 Sep 2017

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!

20 Jun 2017

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.

18 Mar 2017

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.

14 Mar 2017

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.

13 Feb 2016

I got my product in the mail yesterday. I must say very impressed, glad I purchased it. I had the opportunity to share with a family member. She's committed to buying her own bottle now!!

6 Jul 2014

Bon petit breuvage, je trouve le goût assez similaire à la Chartreuse Verte, mais avec plus d'arômes. Une potion magique à posséder.

13 Dec 2013

Reçu en cadeau avec ma commande d'absinthes. Un superbe élixir fabriqué par les moines, un goût fantastique sur un petit morceau de sucre, qui reste longtemps en bouche.

5 Nov 2013

Je me suis guéri d'une dépression majeure grace à ce produit que mon ami skieur des alpes m'avait rapporté il y a 30 ans. Au Québec j'aimerais le faire essayer à mon ami qui a un cancer du sang, je suis convaicu que cela marcherais car ce produit cache de grands secrets.

3 Oct 2013

Tasting like a Chartreuse concentrate, it gives all the flavour punch I miss from the plain Chartreuse Verte. I can make my own Chartreuse cutting it with vodka or other base spirits and sugar to taste, add it to any cocktail, or simply drip it on a sugar cube and eat it. All in all, seems to be a much more versatile alternative to a bottle of Chartreuse Verte. Never tested, but I also suppose it's cheaper to use if used clever.

The optionally insertable drip piece is also a nice addition.

Based on the sediment at the bottle neck after pouring, it contains some added sugar.

Impeccable pour les mals de ventre, quelques gouttes suffisent.

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.
