Chartreuse

    Newer Older

    Day 259/365 of the 2009 Challenge. The theme is "Devotion".

    Chartreuse is a French liqueur composed of distilled alcohol flavored with 130 herbal extracts. The liqueur is named after the Grande Chartreuse monastery where it was formerly produced, located in the Chartreuse Mountains. The liqueur is nowadays produced in a factory in the nearby town of Voiron under the supervision of monks from the monastery.

    The recipie for Chartreuse was given to the monks in 1605. The exact formula has remained a closely guarded secret and is known at any given time only to the three monks who prepare the herbal mixture.

      Good picture and great educational message!
      If they taught this in high school, I would have enjoyed it more.

      I also believe that this is the only alcohol that had a color named after it
