Tasting notes

Citadelle Réserve always evolve subtly in relation to the previous year. In pale gold colour, it shows delicated floral hints, spicy and wooden. The aging in barrels of the best cognacs makes  that it will be complex in aroma and flavour, just as also rounded thanks to the oxygen contribution.


Observations

Elaboration process: the characteristic pale gold colour of this aged gin is because of its aging between 6 and 8 months in French oak barrels that have contained the best cognacs of the Pierre Ferrand group. The unceasing research of perfection from Ferrand group takes its time, since still nowadays is experienced with botanics which make that every year Citadelle Réserve will be subtly different.


For this 2013 the vintage method has been used in the elaboration of Citadelle Réserve. It consists in putting Citadelle Gin in different barrels between 2 and 5 monhts. American oak barrels which provide the sweet vanilla hint are used, and barrels which had Pineau Charente - to provide body and rounded floral hints - and Cognac - which gives its particular elegancy. Once the gin has rested several months in the barrels, a percentage of the contect of each one of them is moved into a new container, where is blended. After, a new gin is added in each barrel, where it will rest again between 2 and 5 months. This process is repeated infinite times, always obtaining the same gin as a result.
