Join us for a special tasting event celebrating gin. Gin World Saint Louis is a week long event running from May 15th-20th dedicated to the exchange and expansion of knowledge regarding the world of gin. Natasha Bahrami's passion is the driving force behind this global event and the week long festival that takes place throughout the city at many venues will conclude with the ultimate gin party at her restaurant The Gin Room.
Intoxicology is please to announce Victor Bouvier, Brand Ambassador for Cognac Ferrand will be tasting Citadelle Classic Gin and the Citadelle Gin Reserve. Citadelle Classic has a delicate and fragrant nose of fresh flowers, jasmine, honeysuckle and cinnamon. After a few moments, stronger, more herbaceous aromas of anise, grains of paradise and cinnamon develop in a most remarkable way. The appetizing bouquet is reminiscent of gardens in springtime. On the palate, juniper gives way to a voluptuous complexity redolent of fresh flowers, leading into an elegant, round and highly refined finish.
The Reserve sleeps for several months in small, seasoned French oak barrels before being bottled. The Solera method is used for the Reserve, Citadelle is the first Gin to employ this method most often found in sherry, Madeira, Marsala; balsamic vinegars; Spanish brandy; and rums. Once the gin has spent some time in casks, a portion of the gin from each cask will be moved into a large vat for blending, and new gin will be added to the remaining gin in the cask. The result is a gin with notes of wood and vanilla while still being very juniper forward.
