Citadelle Gin Reserve 2018 with Yuzu, Genepi, and Cornflower

CITADELLE - Wooden Egg 8213_previewIn 2008, Alexandre Gabriel caused quite a sensation by producing wood-aged Citadelle Reserve. No one had seen an aged gin for nearly a century. In those olden days, when glass was too fragile and expensive and plastic and stainless steel were not options, gin was transported in wooden barrels and so, became wood-aged. Fast forward ten years and Alexandre has pushed the boundaries of aged gin. Enter the wooden egg.

Gabriel produces gin and rests it in five different types of woods barrels - Acacia, Mulberry, Cherry, Chestnut and French Oak – for five months. At the end of the five months, the gin is blended together and refined in an eight-foot tall, egg-shaped oak barrel. Citadelle is the only French spirits distiller to date to use this avant-garde technique, keeping in line with the forward-thinking principles and spirit of Alexandre Gabriel and Maison Ferrand.
