Citadelle French Gin 750ml
*Top 50 Spirits of 2011* A soft and refined standout. Bright, citrusy aroma. This supersilky gin has a big licorice and juniper twang and a slight quinine flavor- in other words, it cries out for tonic water. The sweet, lingering finish evokes pink peppercorns, citrus peel and white wildflowers.
Citadelle Gin from France is filled with 19 different botanicals from all over the world. It is distilled four times and filled to the brim with flavor, this gin is clean, smooth and very refreshing. From the Beverage Testing Institute: "91 points. Layered aromas of honeyed juniper, citrus jelly, delicate herb muffin, and root botanicals with silky, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a nicely balanced pepper, chalk, floral honeycomb, and grassy herb driven finish. Well crafted, rock solid, and very pliable." (07/2012)
