Since 1865, this delicious aperitif wine has stood apart for its exceptional complexity, delightful flavors and stimulating palate. Serious to its role as aperitif, it was known as ‘ouvre l’appétit’ - the key to the appetite. It’s made with a combination of gentian, cinchona (quinine) and a variety of herbs that grow in the Grand Chartreuse Mountains, all of which are infused into a Mistelle base (alcohol added to unfermented grape juice). Traditionally enjoyed neat or with a twist, this may also be used to enhance classic drinks in place of sweet red vermouth.
