Citadelle Original is our very first gin, the French gin par excellence. Dry and structured, it strikes a perfect balance between finesse and intensity. It has been the signature expression of our savoir-faire since 1996.
The tasting experience
Citadelle Original offers a rich and complete aromatic palette.
Juniper introduces Citadelle’s signature botanical from the outset, then opens up to bright citrus notes that enhances the juniper berry’s freshness. The finish leans more exotic… long and spicy thanks to touches of pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Citadelle Original is ideal in a gin & tonic, with a twist of lemon peel. It goes perfectly with a platter of oysters for a true pairing of the best of south-west France.
