Chartreuse is made from a secret recipe since 1605 and requires 130 plants. Only 3 designated Carthusian monks hold the secret to this liquor obtained by maceration. The long ageing process in oak barrels insures the quality and reputation of this plant liquor. The V.E.P. Chartreuse (exceptionaly prolongated ageing) is the "must" of chartreuses which due to the prolongated ageing reveals incomparable aromas and finesse. Yellow Chartreuse is softer than green Chartreuse. Delicious as a disgestive with ice cubes!
