First introduced in October 2016, Citadelle No Mistake Old Tom Gin is a limited edition release from Maison Ferrand. Caribbean brown sugar is toasted, slightly browned, and then alcoholized. This toasted sugar is then aged in spirit casks for 3-4 months. The aged toasted sugar is then added to its Citadelle Reserve Gin, a barrel-aged version of their standard gin, and it spends a further for four months into casks to ensure proper absorption. Bottled at 46% ABV.

    This style is not legally defined, but in general, this style of gin is mildly sweet and is not juniper-forward. It falls in between London Dry Gin and Genever in terms of sweetness level.

Tasting Notes

"Citadelle No Mistake Old Tom Gin pours an attractive golden straw color and shows layered aromas of golden raisin, cinnamon, baked lemon, and a powerful background of refreshing juniper. The palate is rich and lush from the added sugar with more tones of ripe, yellow fruits and a bit of exotic spice that culminate in another blast pine-driven juniper berry."
