Citadelle Gin Box 1 glass 44%
Precursor of French gin, the Ferrand house presented its first original Citadelle gin in 1996. Dry and structured, it finds its balance between finesse and intensity. From the outset, the juniper presents the signature of Citadelle. The craftsmanship of the house will pay off, because this gin has won numerous international medals and has been voted the best gin in the world, among others.
It is presented in a box with a glass.
Nose: precise and uncompromising, marked by notes of cedar and smoke. A lemony note emerges from the glass quickly followed by bacon and spicy notes. Almond milk.
Palate: just as assertive as the nose. Generous on the flavors of peat which declines around the aromas of burnt wood, ashes and chimney fire. Smoked fish, hint of liquorice.
Finish: persistent on peat, but in a much more medicinal register, cardamom, eucalyptus. Back to tar, macadam and dried fish.
