Chartreuse Elixir Vegetal is a punchy but beautiful liqueur made to an original 'elixir of life' recipe revived by the Carthusian monks in the 18th century. We're very excited this bottling has finally landed on US soil, don't walk, run! 

In their own words:

"In 1605, the Duke of Estes entrusted the Carthusians with a manuscript carrying a mysterious recipe composed of 130 plants that could give rise to a "Long Life Elixir". For more than a century and a half, the Carthusians will develop this recipe that will give birth, thanks in particular to Brother Jérôme Maubec, to a definitive product fixed in 1764 called "Elixir Végétal de la Grande Chartreuse". It was quickly distributed as a care product to local populations, especially during the cholera crisis of 1832. Brother Charles was the first to market it on local markets, descending from the monastery. Since 1764, the recipe for the Elixir has remained unchanged."

"It is a cordial, digestive, and very effective tonic:
- Pure in a teaspoon
- In a herbal tea or in a grog with honey and lemon
- A few drops on a piece of sugar, on a meringue
- In a cup of water in case of fatigue, discomfort, or indisposition
- A few drops in a cocktail to bring a herbaceous note"
