Hmmm.. I don't think this is the same Elixier - this one just says Fee Verte's Elixier 70% Bitterspirituose on the label and no wooden bottle to be seen :-) It's 50cl.

I brought back one of the small wooden bottles of the "Elixir de la grande chartreuse" from Paris. I have not tried it yet, but I just might have to break it out soon.

The "Elixir de la grande chartreuse" is an exceptional and potent "magic potion"... It was availlable here at my local liquor store in a tiny bottle hidden in a wood "bottle" last year, unfortunately they don't carry it anymore.

Not an everyday drink but amazing to make my Big red monk drink (1oz chartreuse or elixir, 2oz campary, top with tonic water and a bit of fresh lime juice).

Good to hear, that you like the products. Shipping time is remarkable...

Let's see if the parcel from Australia which I've ordered is here as fast :-))

My recent order from Markus arrived in swift fashion and with no problems [to Western Australia].

3 bottles: Elixier, Un Emile and Deva 50 [for friends].

Haven't opened the Un Emile, that's waiting for .. . the right moment.

Did try the Elixier on Saturday though. I quite like it. Very much non-anise, had quite alot in common with Chartreuse, I felt. So much so that I immediately went and had a shot of Chartreuse to compare. Chartreuse sweeter and felt more potent, which I suppose is odd considering the Elixier is supposed to be 70%...

But I tell you what, I couldn't have had more than 50 - 60mls that evening, plus the shot of Chartreuse, and I did feel rather drunk indeed. Not quiet enough an evening to really tell much of secondary effects or anything though. Thumbs up, enjoyable, pleasantly herbal and just a bit bitter. Very palatable drink.

The absinthe [Versinthe] chocolate was also rather pleasant. I like bitter dark chocolate and this was smooth and the anise flavour complemented it well. I'd buy it again, as it compares reasonably well cost-wise with any imported fancy chocolate. Great talking point parties... heh.

Thanks again Markus for a prompt and smooth transaction.
