More info

In 1605, the Duc d'Estrées entrusted the Carthusian monks with a manuscript containing a mysterious recipe for 130 plants that could give rise to an "Elixir of Long Life". For more than a century and a half, the Carthusian monks perfected this recipe, which, thanks in particular to Brother Jérôme Maubec, gave rise to a definitive product in 1764 called "Élixir Végétal de la Grande Chartreuse". It was quickly distributed as a health product to local populations, particularly during the cholera crisis of 1832. Brother Charles was the first to sell it at local markets, riding down from the monastery on a donkey. The Elixir recipe has remained unchanged since 1764.
Composition
Alcohol, sugar, water, plant substances (130 plants, flowers, barks, roots and spices).
Alcohol content
69% vol.
Bottle capacity
10cl - In a bottle itself, placed in a wooden case that protects it from light and ensures its perfect preservation.


Élixir Végétal takes several weeks to make, and is produced in three stages: distillation to obtain the aroma, maceration to give it its natural color, and extraction to capture the beneficial properties of the 130 plants, flowers, barks, roots and spices it contains. Its virtues lie primarily in the use of plants in their natural state.

It is a highly effective cordial, digestive and tonic:
- Pure in a teaspoon
- In herbal tea or as a toddy with honey and lemon
- A few drops on a lump of sugar or a meringue
- In a cup of water in case of fatigue, malaise or indisposition
- A few drops in a cocktail for an herbaceous note
