Citadelle Reserve Aged Gin (70cl 45.2%)
The original blend of 19 botanicals including juniper, citrus peel and star anise remain, but here we add yuzu, genepi and bleuet (a native french flower) before resting the gin in five different types of wood barrels for five months. Then the gin is reblended from the different barrels and refined in one large egg shaped barrel which helps to marry together all the elemants in a harmonious, delicate way.
The gin holds plenty of citrus and juniper along with lots of dried spices, coconut husk, tobacco and orange. It's silky smooth with ginger, almond and a peppery finish. This has become the benchmark for aged gins around the world and makes an incredible Martini.
