Day 311 Drink: Citadelle 2010 Reserve Gin
Citadelle Gin is distilled in France using pot stills that are normally used to make Cognac. The gin uses 19 different botanicals and comes in a standard and reserve vintage variety.
Citadelle 2010 Reserve Gin is an 88 proof spirit aged for several months in old oak casks. It has just a slight hint of color, but the aroma is a full on floral and spice assault. The botanicals really come through in the flavor of this gin. I don't pick up much wood, but the distillery says the flavor is mellowed a bit.
