Citadelle is half "revival" half new innovation: "revival" because it's a gin that's inspired in the first gin produced in France , in the "Citadelle"; innovation because the distillery Domaine de la Citadelle is situated on France's southeast corner, more famous for its cognacs more than for its gin. But perhaps the boldest part was the revelation that during the low season, when they couldn't legally distill Cognac, they started to distill gin. The government finally relinquished in the year 95, and thus began the magic of the open flames and stills. And so was this famous gin born.

Gin Citadelle

4 /5

- The recipe for Citadelle Gin was developed by a distillery in Dunkirk in 1771. Dunkirk was one of the first ports of call in Europe for many explorers sailing back from the Orient, whose ships were laden with exotic herbs and spices.
- Citadelle Gin is made according to principles laid down in the original recipe. Although the production techniques have improved over the centuries, we still use the same 19 botanicals listed in the original recipe.
- Citadelle Gin is the only gin in the world made with 19 different botanicals, giving the gin a unique, complex, well-balanced flavour. The secret recipe is known only by the master distiller. In keeping with the traditions of the first European trading captains of the 17th century, only the finest spices are used. This unrivalled variety of spices comes from many distant and diverse places: Juniper, France; Coriander, Morocco; Orange peel, Mexico; Cardamom, India; Liquorice, China; Cubeb pepper, Java; Savory, France; Fennel, Mediterranean; Iris, Italy; Cinnamon, Sri Lanka; Violets, France; Almonds, Spain; Cassia, Indochina; Angelica, Germany; Grains of paradise, West Africa; Cumin, Holland; Nutmeg, India, Lemon rind, Spain, Star anise, France.
- Citadelle gin is triple-distilled from wheat and spring water. Before being steeped in neutral alcohol, the botanicals are carefully selected and then placed in a specific bag. This infusion is then distilled to capture each separate aroma, so that the intermingled, complex flavours can develop independently.

5 /5

My husband was raving about this citadelle gin after a trip to Biarritz I couldn't find this to buy anywhere in the UK to purchase on line. After finding UVinum and ordering 2 bottles I was a bit skeptical after reading some of the reviews and it being alcohol and having to pay VAT & Duty. To my surprise this order came within a week and no charges. I placed a second order from a different supplier but same website ( UVinum ) of the citadelle with matching glasses gift box, and that came within about 10 days. I hardly ever write reviews but in this case I felt was necessary. Both of my items were fantastic prices with a great service. I will definitely wouldn't hesitate to use UVinum again. Keep up the good work UVinum
