The Award-Winning French Gin Artisan’s Latest Arrives in the Garden City Just in Time For Summer.

Citadelle Gin, the first French artisanal gin, has added a summer-inspired bottling to its permanent range. The Citadelle Jardin d’été (41.5% ABV) was created by founder and master distiller, Alexandre Gabriel, inspired by his wife’s French garden, and is now available in Singapore.


“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,” says Alexandre Gabriel. “It took several attempts to determine the ideal infusion period for each fruit and botanicals and we’ve finally created the perfect summer in a bottle”.


The new gin was created with the addition of melon flesh, whole lemon, yuzu zest and additional orange peel on top of the 19 botanicals found in the Citadelle Original Gin. 


Sadly, the anticipated Citadelle Gin Pop-Up with Raffles Courtyard was put on hold due to the return to Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), but that doesn’t mean you can’t still imbibe with impunity at home. As delicious as a G&T is, why not try these refreshing recipes instead?


A Robust Lemonade – Citadelle Jardin Lemonade is the perfect accompaniment to any midsummer gathering. This tipple will be sure to cool you down when you mix 60ml Citadelle Jardin d’Été Gin, 30ml fresh lemon juice and 15ml honey in a jug or single-serve glass until the honey is completely dissolved. Add ice and fill to top with sparkling water. Add to the midsummer theme with fresh garnishes like lemon and rosemary.


A French Staple – The Frenchy 75 is the perfect ode to the roaring twenties in France or, as the French say, Années Folles. This cocktail will deliver a burst of liquored-up elation with 30ml simple syrup, and 30ml freshly squeezed lemon juice poured into a Champagne flute. Add 40ml Citadelle Jardin d’Été Gin and top off your glamourous sour with some celebratory bubbles.
