Citadelle Gin has a delicate and fragrant nose of fresh flowers – jasmine – honeysuckle and cinnamon. After a few moments stronger more herbaceous aromas of anise – grains of paradise and cinnamon develop in a most remarkable way. The appetizing bouquet is reminiscent of gardens in springtime. On the palate, juniper gives way to a voluptuous complexity redolent of fresh flowers leading into an elegant – round and highly refined finish.
The 19 botanicals are infused for 72 hours (three days) in which the Citadelle body is shaped and takes all its aromatic notes. For 12 hours Citadelle is distilled in a copper pot still with a naked flame.
