Citadelle has a new surprise in store for the 2013 Reserve. Citadelle will use the SOLERA aging technique starting with the 2013 edition of Citadelle Reserve.
Nearly every gin sold on the market today is bottled immediately after distilling, but Citadelle Reserve Vintage sleeps for several months in small, seasoned French oak barrels before being bottled. While this is very unusual today, this painstaking and lengthy practice is reminiscent of how gin was stored and transported more than 100 years ago when glass (too fragile and expensive), plastic and stainless steel were not options. Barrel aging tends to tame the flower and citrus feel of the gin and enhances the rounder, softer notes.
It is important to know that the goal is not to use as many botanicals as possible but instead, the botanicals are used to bring forward and enhance the classic taste of juniper berries that make a classic gin.
Something never before undertaken in gin aging. Citadelle will use the SOLERA aging technique starting with the 2013 edition of Citadelle Reserve. The Solera aging process is most frequently used for sherry.And while a few companies are barrel-aging gin now, NONE are using the Solera method.
