Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Gin

Introduced: Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Gin

A gin from Germany with Riesling infusion for your own note

With Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Gin, there is a new gin from Germany. The designation of origin of the Saar rather indicates a popular area for Rieslings from the Saar-Ruwer area. So far, no one has known a gin from the Saar.

The Connection with the gin is not a coincidence, but is also taken up by the name. The founder of the VDP Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, the royal Prussian forest master Ferdinand Geltz, is the namesake for this German gin and belongs to the other relatives of some makers. The Riesling grapes used in this gin, come from the Zilliken winery, which is run by distant descendants of the forester. This also explains the connection between the namesake and the dry gin "from Germany". The use of grapes in gin itself is known from other gins, such as the G’Vine varieties.

But the gin, which is distilled by master distiller Andreas Vallendar, has in addition to the 1% -5% Riesling share of course other botanicals. The full list is currently a secret, but the base is a raw spirit distilled from grain that is first macerated, then distilled, by steam infusion with other botanicals. These include lavender, juniper, rosa canina, quince, lemon thyme, sloe, rose hip, angelica, hop blossom, rose, almond peel, coriander and ginger. So certainly some friends, but also botanicals that come from our own cultivation and are rarely found in gin.

Also the Handwork is particularly important for the makers of Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Gin. The gin is produced in small batches, and many botanicals are grown “in the garden at home”. And the gin itself is given a break of 4 weeks.
