Chartreuse Green Liqueur 70cl
With a deep herbal sweetness, Green Chartreuse is known the world over for its botanical bite
Chartreuse Green Liqueur
Made using only neutral alcohol, sugar, and a secret blend of 130 botanicals (plants and flowers), Green Chartreuse has been enjoyed the world over since 1840.
It is still bottled in the traditional Chartruse liqueur bottle, which is embossed with the seal of La Grande Chartruse. The colour is entirely natural, derived from the botanicals used to make it. There are no artificial flavours or preservatives atall.
At any one time, only two Chartruse monks know the identity of the 130 botanicals. The secret of how to blend, and distill is preserved and passed on when needed. It is these two who know which plants to macerate, how to ensure the correct colour, and only they who supervise the slow ageing in oak casks.
The Green Chartreuse has a bouquet which is vibrant, displaying cedar, coriander, cardamom, aniseed, jasmine, rosemary, sage, and basil flavours. It's palate is deeply textured, with a herbal sweetness, and mild pepper flavours.
To bring out all its flavour, it should be consumed very cold, or preferably on the rocks.
Traditionally considered an after dinner drink, Chartreuse is more and more being enjoyed as a long drink. Mix with a neutral tonic (such as Fentimans Botanical Tonic Water) and serve over ice.
