A premium gin, Citadelle was originally developed in a Dunkirk distillery in the late 18th Century, and at the time Dunkirk was one of the earliest European ports for explorers of the Orient, who brought back herbs and spices from the Far East. The result is a fabulous gin made with 19 different botanicals including Moroccan Coriander, French Juniper, Mexican Orange Peel and Chinese Liquorice...
Nose: Simple, herbal nose, some berry and juniper tang.
Palate: Crisp, clean delivery with hints of brine and juniper and citrus.
Finish: Medium length, tangy.
Clean, Crisp, Floral
Ultra smooth with plenty of floral. It also makes an outstanding Gin & Tonic with Fever Tree.

I love Gin, and this is the best I've ever tasted. If you are looking for a crisp, smooth, complex Gin, look no further. I would not recommend using it as a mixer, though. It does not do well in a Gin & Tonic.

One of the smoothest Gins I've had the pleasure of tasting. A great aperatif, when you have the time to relax and take in all the flavours.
