Citadelle Gin is triple-distilled in the Cognac region of France by producer Pierre Ferrand using wheat and spring water. Before being steeped in neutral alcohol, the master distiller selects the 19 botanicals that will complement the freshness of the juniper with tart, floral and exotic flavours. A work of fine balance, it allows the flavours and aromas to intermingle in a perfect harmony. Once the steeping is complete, the infusion is then distilled in small Charentais pot stills with an open flame. The slow distillation allows the distiller to precisely select the heart of the gin, whilst the relatively low swan's neck favours the concentration of essential oils; all of which contributing to the gin's aromatic quality.
Citadel Summer Garden is the distilleries most recent creation. Inspired by the garden of Chateau de Bonbonnet, unspoiled nature where flowers, fruits and herbs flourish, this reinterpretation of our signature gin takes you on a lovely olfactory and taste tour. It reveals accents of Charentais melon, whole lemons and zest of yuzu and orange.
19 different botanicals, juniper berries, almond, orris root, fennel, aniseed, grains of paradise, orange peel, cardamom, violet root, lemon peel, coriander seeds, cubeb berries, cassia bark, liquorice root, savory, nutmeg, angelica root, cumin & cinnamon. Additional botanicals include; whole lemon, yuzu zest, melon flesh & orange peel.
Faintly floral on the nose, with lots of juicy lemon fruit and herbaceousness on the palate. Ultimately, a fresh and citrus-led gin with a hint of upbeat zestiness
Premium tonic garnished with a lemon zest. Delicious as a G&T fortified with a splash of Melonade Melon Aperitif!
