You will like to know that...

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 Maison Ferrand 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.

It has a very subtle and spicy nose, we...
