A fine Gin de France
Multi-awarded with over 60 accolades, Citadelle Gin is an citrus-forward gin made with 19 aromatics and botanicals distilled in Charentais pot stills from the cognac distiller, Maison Ferrand.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
A single-estate gin with a juniper-forward and citrus personality, this gin is made with juniper berries grown in the unique cognac-producing terroir of Maison Ferrand’s Château de Bonbonnet, along with 18 other aromatics and botanicals including cardamom, lemon and orange peels and nutmeg.
A flavor orchestra with layers upon layers of botanicals distilled through Maison Ferrand’s progressive infusion process, Citadelle Gin yields a pure, clear color with a delicate aroma of junipers, oranges, coriander and a subtle floral brightness. On the palate, the character is distinctly of juniper and vibrant citrus flavors quickly followed by notes of spices and peppery notes. A crisp, smooth, light-bodied gin with a spicy, zesty finish.

A PATENTED BOTANICAL INFUSION PROCESS
Grown in Ars, a commune in the Cognac region of France, this gin benefits from the unique terroir used to create premium cognacs of the world. A true château-to-bottle gin, Citadelle Gin is a single-estate spirit whose main botanical ingredient, juniper berries, are grown within Maison Ferrand’s own Château de Bonbonnet in Ars.
Premium ingredients coupled with a patented progressive infusion technique, a process wherein each botanical is carefully infused in different durations (typically 1 – 4 days) and degrees of alcohol to ensure each aromatic is perfectly extracted, has created a artisanal French Gin that has won over the hearts of gin lovers globally, gaining over 60 awards and accolades across the years.
Store your bottle of gin upright in a cool, dark place, ideally between 13 and 16°C. Higher temperatures will affect its flavor and alter its taste. If you prefer to drink your gin cold all the time, you may keep it in the freezer, as its ABV percentage prevents it from freezing. Unopened bottles can last for an indefinite amount of time, but the closer you get to the bottom third of the bottle, please consume quickly to prevent oxidation and taste alteration.
