CITADELLE GIN RESERVE SOLERA 2O13 – This new release from Cognac Ferrand is said to be the first solera-aged gin in the world. It is aged in different types of casks over a period of two to five months. The casks used are ex-Cognac casks, ex-Pineau des Charente casks and American oak casks. Once the gin has aged, it’s poured into the mother solera vat to a specified taste profile where it “marries” before bottling. The solera vat will only ever be half-emptied. Suggested retail for a 75Oml is $35. Available from MS Walker.
