Chartreuse // France
Yellow Chartreuse is milder and sweeter than the Green version. Introduced in 1838, this liqueur is made from 130 herbs, plants and flowers which were crushed, macerated, and distilled in a manner which is known its entirety by two monks today. All natural color with no preservatives added, its color is derived from maceration. Bottled at 80 proof.
