35,0cl. 30,0% Citadelle Gin, France Dashing across the channel to the southwest of France, we find our penultimate gin. Its historical roots actually lie in the city of Dunkirk, home to the citadelle from where it takes its name. The gin is still produced in the small copper pot stills particular to the 17th Century. Citadelle combines the essence of 19 botanicals: juniper still reigns supreme but with cinnamon, nutmeg and genepi (a relative of wormwood) helping to make up the count, the resulting spirit is aromatic and refined. And, again like almost every other gin in this list, this has an aggregated score of 90 points, matched with an average price of $26.
