Citadelle Gin

Citadelle, a gin de Château

Everything begins at the Château de Bonbonnet. This is where we grow the juniper berries, the signature botanical of Citadelle, whose character is expressed in harmony with 18 other spices.

In September 2017, the first Citadelle juniper tree was planted, across from the Château de Bonbonnet in Ars. The first official harvest will take place in autumn 2018.

Our motivations? To master the cultivation of our juniper berries, the principal botanical element of Citadelle gin, and proudly assert its French origin. Our objective for the next five years is to cultivate five hectares of juniper trees. It is essential for us to ensure the quality of our botanicals, so what could be better than to grow them ourselves? The Cognac region is a magnificent terroir, and wild juniper trees grew here even before the cultivation of vineyards.

Proud of our terroir, Citadelle’s long-term objective is to work only with local producers for the various botanicals that make up our gin, and even to produce a certain number of them directly at the Château de Bonbonnet, in Ars.
