Notes:In1764, Brother Antoine completed the recipe of Green Chartreuse, a work started in the 16th century by many alchemists in search for an elixir. The Original recipe is a combination of 130 different herbs carefully chosen for their health properties, going through maceration, distillation and ageing processes.
At 55% alc. /vol, Green Chartreuse strong character tends to keep people afraid to mix it with cocktail. The Green Chartreuse Smoky Martini (Green CSM) is as simple as a martini. By chilling your bottle of Green Chartreuse, the burning perfume will decrease to let the beautiful blend of aromas and flavours expresses its best.
