Citadelle Gin

Citadelle Gin

70cl | 44% ABV | France

Citadelle Gin is a beautiful and unique French gin made by a team of Cognac distillers. Released back in 1995, Citadelle was definitely amongst the world’s first artisan Gins, but age hasn’t faded its glory! In fact, we’d place it amongst the best…

With prominent juniper and a sweet orange kick off, Citadelle feels nice and light. It builds up into a steady, dry spice, though, giving it the complexity to work in most cocktails.

Key Flavours

"Legendary pioneering master distiller, fantastic gin filled with piney juniper and waxed, caramelised orange. Citadelle was the very first craft gin in this new generation and set a standard that few have surpassed the in 25 years since."

About this product

Citadelle Gin is cooked by open flame in a requisitioned Charentais pot still. The balance of juniper and 18 other botanicals is carefully steeped in a triple-distilled wheat base alcohol, then distilled very slowly.

Citadelle Gin is the brainchild of Alexandre Gabriel at the Pierre Ferrand distillery in Cognac, France, who created and released his Gin out of passion. The spirit was pretty much dormant back then, so he really had to hunt for an audience.

Citadelle Gin is one of the old school gins in this modern age, having launched way back in the 1990s. The French brand’s history reaches even farther back than that, though, with the recipe developed by a distillery in Dunkirk in 1771.
