Chartreuse

                   shahr-trooz  /  French  /  1865-70

Since 1737 the Carthusian monks of France have been producing the yellowy-green liqueur Chartreuse, which is made from 130 different flowers, plants and herbs. Chartreuse, a French word for charterhouse, is named after the monk's Grande Chartreuse monastery in Grenoble, France. It wasn't until 1884 that the word chartreuse became generally used to describe this unique colour.
