Today the Carthusian monks produce the Chartreuse as yesterday: they jealously preserve the secret recipe of which they are the only ones who know the details. No additives or dyes, just the natural color given by the 130 herbs macerated in a high quality alcohol, then distilled. A distillate of honey and sugar syrup is then added to the Jaune variety. At this point the long aging begins in the oak barrels, in the beautiful cellars of Voiron, in the south-eastern part of France.
Distillates have different alcoholpercentages. So, we have defined a parameter allowing you to better understand and compare different prices. This parameter is calculated by dividing the bottle price by the alcohol content. The alcohol content (or strength) is the amount of pure alcohol (ethanol) contained in the distillate.
This parameter indicates the price of a single 4cl dosage of distillate. It is calculated by dividing the price of the bottle by its quantity (expressed in cl), then multiplying by the centilitres of the recommended single dose, as average in cocktail recipes.
