Today was hot, hot, hot.
Obviously this means it's a good time to try out my latest gin purchase:
Citadelle Gin from France.
I bought it because it has a cool bottle and was on sale. It has been on my list of gins to try but really, those were the defining reasons. It's a delicate gin. The juniper is on the back end and not overpowering. It smells very botanical but I'm not sure which of the 19 ingredients I'd say stands out the most. It's made in copper stills over a naked flame which is pretty impressive. All in all it's very drinkable but not my Hendericks.
