Chartreuse - MOF Meilleur Ouvrier de France - b. 2024 - 70cl - 2 bottles

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 bearing the recipe of an alchemist with a great knowledge of herbs and the ability to treat them to create a beneficial remedy. After years of trying to interpret the manuscript, the first practical formula for the reproduction of this 'Elixir of long life' was designed in the early 1700s. Nowadays this recipe is reproduced exclusively by the monks of Chartreuse, who refer to the ancient manuscript to recreate what is now called the "Elixir plant of the Grand-Chartreuse." The secret recipe contains 130 herbs that are macerated in quality alcohol and then distilled. We then aging in oak stems in the evocative wineries of Voiron. This version is a special Cuvée of the best sommelier in France. It is recommended to consume it at a very cold temperature. Traditionally considered as an after-dinner digestive, but increasingly also used as a long drink.
