Citadelle Gin, the first artisanal French gin, brings the latest addition to its permanent range, Citadelle Jardin d’été, to Singapore.
Inspired by a French garden cultivated by the wife of Citadelle Founder and Master Distiller, Alexandre Gabriel, Citadelle Jardin d’été (41.5% ABV) is created with the addition of melon flesh, whole lemon, yuzu zest and additional orange peel on top of the 19 botanicals found in Citadelle Original Gin. With Citadelle Jardin d’été, which translates to ‘summer garden’, Citadelle reveals its talent for selecting and mixing aromas to create flavours that surprise and delight.
The blend of fruits, citrus and herbs creates an aromatic experience with a balanced and bright flavour profile that is reminiscent of summer in a bottle. Inviting imbibers on a sensory stroll through a fragrant garden in the French countryside, the fresh and delicate Citadelle Jardin d’été recreates the flavour and fragrance of just picked fruits. The versatile Citadelle Jardin d’été can be enjoyed however you like gin – neat, on the rocks, in a martini or in a variety of cocktails. To truly savour the fresh garden flavours, mix up a gin & tonic with one part Citadelle Gin Jardin d’eìteì and three parts tonic over ice in a large wine glass, garnished with a lemon peel or a fresh melon ball placed delicately in the glass.
“The new Citadelle Jardin d’été is a tribute to my wife’s beautiful garden with all of her fruits, vegetables and herbs blooming in the summer. Her garden is my oasis and I wanted to bottle this little patch of paradise,” says Alexandre Gabriel. “It took several attempts to determine the ideal infusion period for each fruit and botanicals and we’ve finally created the perfect summer in a bottle”.
Citadelle Jardin d’été is now available for purchase at selected Cold Storage and Market Place stores across Singapore (RSP S$82), with limited-time promotions available for the launch period.
