Description

A bottle of Chartreuse Green liqueur produced in Tarragona, Spain. We estimate this was bottled between 1951 and 1959.

Please note, there is no size or ABV stated on the label, but this appears to be a 70cl bottle.

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.

Condition

Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note wear to the label, capsule and damage to the tax strip.

The cork is sitting low in the neck but appears to be secure. The bottle is not leaking and the closure does not smell of alcohol.

Note the absence of a condition statement does not imply that this lot is in perfect condition or free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing. Older bottles often contain small amounts of sediment. We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults.
This bottle does not appear to be leaking. While we take every care to pack bottles securely we cannot guarantee that old corks and closures will not leak in transit.
