Yellow Chartreuse - 70cl - 43% ABV
Milder and sweeter than the famous Green Chartreuse, Yellow Chartreuse was introduced to the world in 1840. It also is presented in the traditional Chartreuse liqueur bottle embossed with the seal of La Grande Chartreuse. Its colour is entirely natural with no artificial flavours or preservatives.
It, too, can be enjoyed neat (if so, serve very cold) or in a long drink.
Only two Chartreuse monks know the identity of the 130 plants, how to blend them and how to distill them into this world famous liqueur. They are also the only ones who know which plants they have to macerate to produce the natural green and yellow colours. And they alone supervise the slow ageing in oak casks.
To taste it is very sweet, but it becomes both spicy and pungent. It is comparable to other herbal liqueurs such as Galliano, but far more vegetal. Compared to the Green version, it far more mellow and a lot sweeter.
