The ideal gift! Buy the best modern gin online. Price and reviews available for Citadelle Gin Modern – 1.75l Bottle. Citadelle is half revival, half new innovation: the revival is based on one the first gin produced in France at the Citadelle. The innovation is in the where and the how. Maison Ferrand Distillery and the SW corner of France is best known for its Cognac. But perhaps the boldest part was the revelation that during the offseason when they legally couldnt distill Cognac, they could distill gin. The government finally relented in 95, and so began the magic of open flames [don’t try this at home] and pot stills: Citadelle 2.0 was thusly born.
