Chartreuse Diffusion (Herbal liqueur)
Yellow Chartreuse is the milder, sweeter younger sister of the more famous Green Chartreuse. Introduced to the world in 1838, it is an entirely natural French liqueur which has no artificial flavours or preservatives. Its unique colour comes from its ingredients. Both of these liqueurs are made by monks based on a manuscript given to them in 1605. Just two Chartreuse monks know the identity of the 130 plants, herbs, and botanicals which make up the Chartreuse liqueurs. They are in charge of selecting, crushing, and mixing the ingredients before they are taken to Voiron, France and left to macerate in alcohol. It is them distilled before being left to age for years in oak casks.
This historic liqueur is so iconic that a colour was named after it. Join the likes of Hunter S. Thompson and Russian Tsar Nicolas II in the consumption of this queen of liqueurs. The flavour and colour of the spirit evolve as it ages, making it a gift that just keeps giving.
Yellow Chartreuse comes in the traditional Chartreuse liqueur bottle with the seal of La Grande Chartreuse. Traditionally considered an after-dinner drink, it can be enjoyed both neat or in cocktails. To enjoy its vegetal, sweet, and spicy flavour to the fullest, consume it very cold or on the rocks. It can be paired with pineapple, honey, ice cream, nuts, or figs. For more of a savoury pairing, fatty meats are an excellent option.
