History for Novacaine Drink
François Hannibal d’Estrées, a marshall of artillery under French King Henry IV, revealed the recipe for this Elixir Vegetal to Carthusian monks around 1605.
The monks have kept their mystery through ups and downs, migrations and reunions, and were once creating Chartreuse in exile from Spain.
