  Cave de la Chartreuse - Voiron (Cellars)
by vinc_bilb

One of the largest liqueur cellar in the world ! Interesting and original visit that I recommend, covering the Chartreuse Order, the distilleries and economic activities. The distillerie is located in Voiron since 1935.

- Liquors : Description of the many Chartreuse liqueurs made by the Carthusian Monks
- History : A chronicle of the 900-years of the Carthusian Monks and the secret manuscript that became Chartreuse Liqueur.
- Tourist Information : tour and 3D MOVIE
- Museum of La Grande Chartreuse (not at the same place): Information about the Monastery, the daily life of the monks and the nine hundred year history of the Carthusians.

Guided tours of the cellars are free and include a complimentary liqueur tasting.

Address: Chartreuse Diffusion 10, Bv. Kofler 38500 Voiron
Directions: Located in Voiron, in the heart of the French Alps,between the Chartreuse and Vercors mountain ranges
