Chartreuse - Elixir de la Grande-Chartreuse
Made by the Chartreuse Monks since 1737 according to the instructions set out in the secret manuscript given to them by Marechal d'Estrees in 1605.
The Herbal Elixir gets its unique flavour from 130 medicinal and aromatic plants and flowers.
It is a cordial, a liqueur and a very effective tonic.
Ingredients : alcohol, sugar, plants and flowers.
Presentation : in a small bottle, itself placed in a wooden case which protects it from the light and makes sure it keeps perfectly.
Use : a few drops on a lump of sugar, straight, or in a little sugared water, as an infusion.
