Tasting notes: Color: Pale, limpid gold. Nose: Herbaceous notes of dried spices, but also coconut shell, tobacco and orange flower. The second nose brings out notes of juniper berry and green tea. Mouth: The first note is silky, abundant, a bit spicy/peppery, with hints of dried tobacco. Midtasting, additional notes of lemon zest, ginger and almond. A lasting finish.
Citadelle Gin exudes delicate aromas of fresh flowers highlighted by more assertive citric scents. Once served, it emanates more intense, herbaceous notes of juniper and anise; then, the spicy cinnamon side softens the nose, bringing a very gourmand dimension to the gin. On the palate, the juniper cedes to a long, voluptuous, spicy fragrance. But while Citadelle offers complete aromatic richness, its three character traits remain: Juniper, its signature, the key base of Citadelle Citrus, the complementary note that underlines the juniper Exotic, offering an additional level of enjoyment with touches of pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon. Beautifully balanced, it is elegant, soft and and long in the mouth, with an alcohol content of 44%. A perfect equilibrium between intensity and finesse. Citadelle has won more than 60 medals, among them “Spirit of the Year” at the 2017 World Spirit Awards as well as “World’s Best Gin” and “Gin Grand Master” in London. Its bottle hasn’t escaped attention either; it was awarded a gold medal at the Spirits Design Master 2017.
Attractive dark colour. The nose is discreet. The palate reveals a quite tannic attack with very beautiful thread, dense and elegant. A vintage worked in fineness.
