Chartreuse is a yellow color mixed with a small amount of green that was named because of its resemblance to the color of one of the French liqueurs called yellow chartreuse, introduced in 1838. Hey I studied color theory a lot. it's my boring yellow chartreuse albatross. ;)

But Green Chartreuse was the first liquor the Carthusian monks produced in 1605. So it is named after Green Charteuse or Yellow Charteuse - confusion abounds :). By the way, the green stuff is infinitely better than the yellow and has a significant alcohol percentage and leaves an effervescent feeling on the tongue if taken straight. Good stuff, but expensive - ridiculously expensive with the "privatized" liquor in WA state now.
