Citadelle Gin Reserve is matured for six months in Pierre Ferrand Cognac casks, lending the spirit a pale gold color, along with enticing vanilla, baking spice, and oak notes. While we weren't quite sure what to expect, this unusual gin is complex, warming, and delicious.
Citadelle Gin is based on a recipe developed by a distillery in Dunkirk in 1771. Dunkirk was a significant port for spice traders, and this influence is clear in this gin; starting with triple-distilled wheat spirit, Citadelle is made with a full 19 botanicals from around the world. The result is complex, layered, and compelling with a round, subtly sweet finish.
