Citadelle Gin Reserve from France (750ml)

SKU #1050955

*Special one time pricing* From the producer: In 2008, Alexandre Gabriel caused quite a sensation by producing wood-aged Citadelle Reserve. No one had seen an aged gin for nearly a century. In those days, when glass was too fragile and expensive and plastic and stainless steel were not options, gin was transported in wooden barrels. And thus became wood-aged. With Citadelle Reserve, Maison Ferrand celebrated the rebirth of golden gins. What began as a ‘family’ experiment in 2008 and shared with a few inquisitive bartenders and friends has now blossomed into a gin that is very much sought out today by bartenders and consumers for its different taste profile. After several years of experimentation, Gabriel perfected his recipe: adding 3 botanicals (yuzu, genepi, bleuet), and resting gin in five different types of wood barrels (Acacia, Mulberry, Cherry, Chestnut and French Oak) for five months. At the end of the five months, the gin is blended together and refined in an eight-foot tall, egg-shaped oak barrel of 2,45 meters high. The egg shape of the wooden vat creates a natural convection that facilitates an harmonious and delicate integration when blending all different-aged barrels. Citadelle is the only French spirits distiller to date to use this avant-garde technique, keeping in line with the forward-thinking principles and spirit of Alexandre Gabriel and Maison Ferrand.
