Chartreuse "V.E.P." Green 1L
Extra-aged Green Chartreuse. Aromas are keenly botanical and vegetal/woodsy. The palate shows peppermint, citrus peel, and sage along with the herbs and botanicals. Concludes with finesse and power.
The legendary aged liqueur of the Carthusian Monks is becoming more limited every year. Demand is through the roof on their highest end liqueur, the VEP or vieillissement exceptionnellement prolongé. That means that the secret recipe is aged for an extended period of time (much speculation as to exactly how long) in oak casks in the traditional cellars at their facility in Voiron. It is truly one of the world's great delicacies. Because of the unusually difficult method of production, supply will not be increased, so expect shortages in the future.
