Chartreuse has an interesting history: it has been produced since at least 1737 by Carthusian Monks. As such, this liquor was named after Grand Chartreuse, the monks’ monastery perched high in the Chartreuse Mountains in Grenoble, France. Amazingly, it is still made in their nearby distillery in the small town of Voiron today. The liquor itself can be either green or yellow and is made from distilled alcohol matured with the addition of an incredible 130 plants, herbs and flowers; as such, this spirit enjoys a subtle herbal flavour that makes it truly unique. There aren’t many spirits that improve in the bottle over time, but Chartreuse is one of them.
