Chartreuse Yellow Bottled 1950s 75cl / 40%
14 May 2019
A bottle of Chartreuse Yellow liqueur from France. We estimate this was bottled in 1951 to 1956.
The label is a reproduction of those used in the 19th century, and was created to celebrate the first anniversary of the Carthusian monks returning to Chartreuse in June 1940.
Chartreuse has been produced by Carthusian monks in France since 1737. In the early 20th century, the monastery and distillery were nationalised by the French government. The monks, unwilling to give up their secret recipe, moved production to Tarragona, Spain. They later returned home and today all Chartreuse is produced in France.
