Map of All Distilleries Where Chartreuse Was/Is Made
September 05, 2018
I'm doing some research into the history of Chartreuse and learning so much. I'll share some of the info as I continue to gather it. Let's start with this.
There have been 7 Chartreuse distilleries. The most recent one just opened, and representatives from the US importer, Frederick Wildman, just visited it.
The first distillery didn't actually make the finished Chartreuse product but it was where the monks were given the recipe and probably experimented with it. The second distillery, Le Grand Chartreuse, is the location of the big monastery.

On the Google map below, you can click on the legend and see the dates that each distillery operated, and some more information on a few of them. You might have to open it in a separate window to see the legend.
