Chartreuse Green V.E.P. Liqueur 1L France
The elixir of long life, Chartreuse is made of a secret recipe that has been handed down to each generation of Carthusian monks since 1605. The formula is said to call for 130 herbs, flowers, and secret ingredients combined in a wine brandy base. However, the exact recipe for Chartreuse remains a secret and is known only to the three monks who prepare the herbal mixture. In fact, no single person holds the entire recipe - each monk has knowledge of only 1/3 of the ingredients used to make the liqueur.
The V.E.P. is a selected portion of the traditional recipe aged for extra time in French oak casks. Nothing short of an epiphany can begin to describe ones first sip of this liquid jewel. The pale green color is as enticing as the intoxicating aromas of tarragon, fennel and coriander. The palate is deeply concentrated and medium-sweet with flavors of mint, citrus and sage. The most powerful attribute occurs at the finish, as each component melds into one harmonious distinct flavor, leaving you green with envy for another sip - chanting is optional. Few bottles of this make it into the U.S. and those that do, won't last long.
