The Chartreuse liqueur dates back to 1605, when in a monastery near Paris the monks received as a gift from the marshal of Henry IV a manuscript showing the recipe of an alchemist with great knowledge of herbs and the ability to treat them to create a beneficial remedy.

It took years to interpret the manuscript, and in the early 1700s the first practical formula for the reproduction of this "Elixir of long life" was drawn. Today this recipe is reproduced exclusively by the Chartreuse monks to create the "Grande-Chartreuse vegetable Elixir".

The recipe, kept secret, contains 130 herbs which are macerated in quality alcohol and subsequently distilled. It then proceeds to aging in oak barrels in the evocative cellars of Voiron.

Chartreuse herbal tea consists of: mint, verbena, lime, orange blossom and orange leaf.

Elixir Vegetal is presented in a small ampoule contained in a wooden box that protects it from light, preserving it. With a unique flavor, given by the 130 aromatic and medicinal plants.

Combine 10 drops of Elixir in a warm Chartreuse herbal tea to enjoy a moment of wellness and relaxation.
