Clear in colour. The bouquet brings a range of aromas form a mesh of lemon meringue, orange zest and mineral notes with some heavier aromas 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. The finish shows coriander seed and mineral with a delicate citrus zest fade, invigorating with a sense of elegance.

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. 1775 DISTILLERIE ROYALE pays tribute to Alexandre Gabriel's years of research in dusty 18th century archives which brought to light that the first patented French Genièvrerie was established in 1775 by decree of King Louis XVI. Forgotten for hundreds of years, Gabriel's exploration uncovered Citadelle original recipe. 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, it is the only gin infused with this combination of botanicals, which enhance the juniper and create one of the most sophisticated, juniper-forward London dry gins available today.
