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

Green is the classic Chartreuese and features a complex herbal mix of earthy, minty and citrus notes with a beautiful syrupy texture.

Bottled at 56% 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 made 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.
