Information
The history of Chartreuse Liqueurs really dates back to 1605 when Francois Hannibal d'Estrees, Marshal of King Henri IV's artillery gave the gift of an already ancient manuscript to the monks in Vauvert near Paris. The recipe for this elixir was incredibly complex, and not fully understood, so the manuscript was sent to the Mother House of the Order - La Grande Chartreuse - near Grenoble. After exhaustive study Frere Jerome Maubec in 1737 drew up the practical formula for 'the Elixir of Long Life'. This formula was really a medicine, but recognising what a pleasant drink it was the Monks, in 1764, developed the Green Chartreuse you can now buy today.
