Chartreuse Cuvee des M.O.F. Sommeliers 45% 70cl

In stock

Chartreuse is made from a recipe from the 18th century, containing 130 plants, herbs, and flowers handcrafted by Carthusian Monks in the French Alps. Cuvee des MOF Sommeliers was first created in 2008 as a collaboration between the Fathers of the Chartreuse Monastery and the Meilleur Ouvriers de France Sommeliers.

The resulting liqueur is a spicier and drier version of Yellow Chartreuse, perhaps even more complex, coming from the additional time spent in the barrel. A truly exceptional spirit that is extremely limited in production and highly sought after.

This Month's Mixed Cases

The Producer



Chartreuse is a rare liqueur made by Carthusian monks in the French Alps from a recipe created in the 18th century and designed for its restorative properties. Over the centuries, the recipe has barely changed from its 130 herbs, plants, and flowers and continues to be made by the monks.

There are two main expressions: 'Green' and 'Yellow'. They follow roughly the same recipe: Green is more herbal and bitter, whilst Yellow is sweeter, milder in flavour, and lower in alcohol. There are also VEP versions (Exceptionally Long Aged) that are carefully selected by the monks each year. Old bottlings of these fetch extraordinary premiums in the auction markets.

During the last decade, world demand has created a supply shortage of this elixir, so much so that we, like other retailers, are allocated tiny amounts. The monks can only produce so much, as they dedicate much of their time to other duties.

At Noble Grape, we adore these beautiful, hand-crafted liqueurs. Some say they are best in cocktails or made into a long drink. We like it neat, or perhaps just one block of ice. Try it with hot chocolate in winter, or take it in your hip flask on a walk on a cold winter's day.

Due to Chartreuse's high demand and limited supply, our stocks tend to sell out quickly. Please follow our social media pages for updates of forthcoming releases.
