Default Genevrette? Do the French make anything good?

Hey all,
I was wondering if anyone has tasted genevrette? French fermented drink made from half barley and half juniper berries. Id it any good? Is there a recipe anywhere? I can't find one.

Brew on my friends

My favorite sipping gin is French. It's name is Citadel, and like the Dutch gins it is commonly drunk neat.

Is that the regular or the Special Reserve Citadelle? The regular's just a tad funky for me, but the Special Reserve makes a sublime G&T, especially if you use key limes instead of regular ones.

I've only ever seen the one, so I assume it is the regular.

You'd know...the special reserve is aged in wooden casks, believe it or not. Gives it a sort of yellow urine-like color very different than normal gin.

Doesn't taste like wood or anything- just really smooth, that's all.
