The words ‘distilled with time’ mean that it takes time to make Citadelle because it is pot distilled (not column) in Charentais copper pot stills one small batch at a time – a method that imparts a smooth and creamy texture. In addition, Citadelle uses a cold infusion process to infuse each botanical into the gin, which takes a week.

The second statement on the label – ‘naked flame distillation’ –denotes that Citadelle is distilled in these Cognac pot stills over a naked flame, making it the only gin that uses this technique. Distilling gin on an open flame requires a deft touch and far more attention than a column still or steam distillation, which is otherwise used. The naked flame concentrates flavours and releases more essential oils giving Citadelle a creamier texture and bigger mouthful.

Tasting Note by MasterOfMalt.com

Clear. A range of aromas form a mesh of lemon meringue, orange zest and mineral notes with some heavier scents of spicy stewed pear. The flavour wave begins with orange pith, aniseed and coriander seed with a soft, spicy, slightly oily mouthfeel unfolding with excellent length. Sweet spirit backbone. Aftertaste of coriander seed and mineral with a delicate citrus zest fade. A full bodied and invigorating Gin that retains a sense of elegance.
