Vieille Cure

Vieille Cure is a herbal liqueur (similar to Chartreuse) was made at the Abbey in Cenon near Bordeaux. It was based on various spirits (Fine Champagne and Armagnac) and 52 alpine plants, sugar syrup and honey but production ceased in 1986.

There do seem to be the odd vintage bottles about - does anyone know if there is a company out there reviving this liqueur?
