Citadelle Gin 1L
Place of Origin: Charente, France
A small batch French Gin produced by Maison Ferrand. Juniper forward, with softer notes of orange and green cardamon to follow. Medium in body, with notes of fresh bread, grass and pepper. Perfect for classic and modern cocktails.
Hints of violet, sweet orange, coriander and floral brightness. Leans slightly citrus, but there’s another side here as well, with hints of a spicy/floral deeper notes: nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom. Nice and contemporary in character.
The taste begins quietly until the aromatics re-enter the nose. The middle begins with fresh bright juniper, turning more crisp and bold. The finish is what sets Citadelle Gin apart from its peers: really bright, a touch sweet and strongly aromatic: cardamom, angelica, nutmeg, a wide array of baking spices which melds into a more sharp licorice and fennel on the finish. Generally spice forward and slightly contemporary with a juniper base.
