La Chartreuse!!

I went to Voiron only to see the cellars. But it looks like a cute village and there is another liqueur made in there. A Genepy if my memory is good. But i had only time to visit the cellars of Chartreuse...

My favorite part!


I love this liqueur. I love it even more since i saw how it's done!! Well, «saw» is a big word since the Père Chartreux in charge of the drink keeps the secret of the receipe for himself...


I also visit the museum of La Grande-Chartreuse. This is located in the moutains near Saint-Pierre en Chartreuse. The museum is nice. It explains how live the Pères Chartreux and how the community is fonctioning. The monks are still living in there and are still very active. Very interresting.
