Chartreuse Green Liqueur 750 ML Hard to find ! France This is the only liqueur in the world with a completely natural green colour. It is powerful and unique. Only a few Chartreuse monks know which plants they have to macerate to produce the natural green. In 1605, Carthusian monks living just outside the city of Paris received a gift from Francois Hannibal d'Estres, the Marshall of the King's Artillery. The gift was a manuscript that Francois had inherited, and detailed a recipe for a liqueur that was simply named "Elixir of Long Life. The manuscript was nearly impossible to decipher and in the beginning of the 18th century, was sent to La Grande Chartreuse. In 1737, Frere Jerome Maubec, the monastery's apothecary, unravelled the mysterious recipe, which called for the use of over one hundred herbs and botanicals. Today, Chartreuse Liqueur continues to be made exclusively by Carthusian monks and remains one of the oldest and most mysterious spirits available. Only three monks from the order know the recipe to make the liqueur, and each has taken a vow of silence in order to protect its integrity. Chartreuse Green Liqueur is made according to the recipe bequeathed to the monks by Francois Hannibal d' Estres. The recipe calls for the maceration of over 130 different herbs, plants, roots and botanicals that can be grown near the French Alps into a base wine. Following maceration, the liqueur is aged in oak vats for five years.
