Favorite Bottles: Elixir Vegetal de las Grande Chartreuse

This little guy packs quite wallop at 71% abv with incredibly intense aromatics. Serving suggestions include a few drops on a sugar cube and mixed with lots of water. I think it shows best when dashed into a glass of champagne.

It is unavailable in the U.S. and I have not seen in any European liquor shops either. This bottle, like every other I have seen, came from the distillery.

We found a bottle in the basement at Fortnum & Mason in London, right next to the Noilly Prat Ambre :)
