Welcome to Château de Bonbonnet in the southwest of France, where the magic happens! This is the home of the award-winning Citadelle Gin. In 1996, Cognac Ferrand's Master Blender, Alexandre Gabriel, had the idea to distill the essence of the region into one perfectly crisp spirit. Thus, the first artisanal gin was born, and it happened to be French! The process starts with the star of the gin: juniper berries, which grow right in front of the Château. In addition to juniper berries, 18 other botanicals are progressively infused into in a French wheat-based spirit for different lengths of proof and time to capture each's unique aromatic and flavor properties. This “Gin de Château” is then distilled in small copper pot stills, resulting in the beautifully balanced distinguished profile of Citadelle Original gin: juniper-dominate with supporting citrus and exotic notes, all with a soft, elegant texture. Best enjoyed in a Citadelle gin and tonic with a swath of fresh lemon zest. If you’re feeling indulgent, pair with oysters like they do in Southwest France! Winner of a trifecta at 2019's Ultimate Spirits Challenge: CHAIRMAN’S TROPHY, TRIED-AND-TRUE AWARD, and GREAT VALUE. “A Triple Award Winning gin, one that I personally consider to be one of the best 10 gins in the world.” - Paul Pacult, Spirit Journal “It’s fantastic in classic cocktails.” - Millicia West, GQView all products by CitadelleCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING
