One day in 1605, Marshal François Hannibal d'Estrées gave the Carthusian Fathers of the Charterhouse of Vauvert (in Paris) a mysterious manuscript containing the formula for an Elixir of Long Life.The Carthusian monks used all their science to decipher the grimoire and their patient work finally came to fruition when Brother Jérôme Maubec, apothecary of the Grande Chartreuse. The first liqueur, the ancestor of the Chartreuse Verte that we consume, was born. It is this very first liqueur that the Carthusian monks are reviving today, naming it « Liqueur d’Elixir » to commemorate the handing over of the manuscript, 400 years ago.
