Chartreuse's Yellow Vieillissement Exceptionnellement Prolongé (VEP) which uses the traditional recipie aged in oak barrels.

Yellow is milder and sweeter than Green and that comes through on the VEP version, which is honeyed and herbal.

Bottled at 42% in 1000ml and is rumoured to be around eight years old.

The order of Chartreuse dates back to 1605, when monks in a monastery near Paris gifted a manuscript depicting an elixir made up of 130 herbs with the method to macerate, blend and infuse them. It wasn't until the 18th century that a study of the manuscript was undertaken at Mother House of the Order - La Grande Chartreuse - in the mountains near Grenoble in southeast France.

First produced 1764, it was a used as a medicine and then as a beverage in the following centuries. Today only two Chartreuse Monks are said to know the names of the 130 herbs and plants in the liqueur's production.
