Genepi du Habert

View On Black


"Génépi is a generic term given to several herbs from the Alps that include, amongst others, some high altitude wormwood." Created by the Carthusian Monks, this new liqueur, Genepi du Habert, is characterized by a very fine aroma which is presented in a pretty looking bottle. The Génépi du Habert is milder (25 °) than a traditional Génépi. It is entirely composed of natural elements reflected in the liqueur's green apperance.


Today, all the Chartreuse liqueurs are made only in Voiron, France.

However, the 130 herbs, plants and flowers from which Chartreuse is made are stored in the Monastery of "La Grande Chartreuse", 25 kilometers away. There, they are crushed, blended, whatever the secret recipe requires - and are eventually taken to the Voiron distillery where only the two monks are allowed to macerate and distill them, and finally oversee their ageing.

Today's Challenge

Consider shaking things up. How 'bout taking a new route? trying a new recipe? shooting something completely different….. Surprising someone....

Share a photo of anything that represents that change or chance.

Still Life images are a challenge for me and a big change from my normal image. My biggest struggle is setting up the shot, putting things together so they look good.
