A Smuggler's delight.
 
It all began in the year 1775, when Louis XVI allowed two Frenchmen, Carpeau and Stival to open a distillery making Genièvre at the Citadelle in Dunkirk. The port of Dunkirk was at that time a major hub where merchants from all over the World would bring their goods to trade… There was an abundance of spices coming from Far East, just what they needed for the production of Genièvre or Gin. Soon English smugglers overcrowded the port of Dunkirk in search of French Gin that was supposedly way better than the one coming from the Netherlands and Sweden.

The Gin business soon died out and it was not until a decade ago when Alexandre Gabriel began to study the distillation methods used to make Genièvre as they did back in the days. He hired a scholar to help him rummage through a century-old archive where they found notes from the golden times of Gin, refreshed the ingredients a bit, and Citadelle Gin was born.
 
Citadellle Gin is copper pot still distilled and made from 19 botanicals from all over the World. The infusion of these botanicals happens in three days in which time the Gin gains its character.

What does Citadelle Gin taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Citadelle Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Corner
Few Gin Distillers Make Their Own Alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral spirit: A commodity that in distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavour-infusing process that makes each Gin different.

Allen
Allen,
Very nicely balanced gin. The flowers, citrus and spice flavors definitely predominate. There is juniper here but it takes a back seat. Lovely in citrus based cocktails.

Amanda,
Fantastic Gin. Very smooth and comparable to Hendricks.
 
Mark
Mark,
At present this is my favorite gin for mixing. It has a finesse that works well in a wide range of cocktails. It also makes a good not-too-dry martini.

Scott,
Wonderful Gin, though I prefer Malfy. I didn't get some of the complexities listed, but it might be due to my habit of mixing it with Tonic... I'm not a fan of straight Gin.

One of the better Gin's available. A Gin with some bite and a smooth finish. A non gin drinking friend said it was like drinking a pine tree, which is funny but apropos
