The artisanal French pioneer, Citadelle Gin’s newest addition, Jardin d’Été, offers an escape from reality with refreshing tipples that will make your kitchen feel like a sweet-smelling French garden in the summer. Up your home entertaining game and get into the French conviviality with bright and fruity recipes that take on gin favourites that everyone enjoys.
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.
“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,”
– Alexandre Gabriel
The blend of fruits, citrus, and herbs creates an aromatic experience with a balanced and bright flavour profile reminiscent of summer in a bottle. 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 get everyone started, here are three cocktail recipes from Citadelle Gin that you can craft and savour fresh garden flavours from the comfort of your home!
