In the heart of Europe, in the Saarland, near the border triangle between Germany, Luxembourg and France, comes Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Gin.
What gives this gin its unique character is the addition of wine, which also gave the gin its name: The gin bears the name Ferdinand in honour of Ferdinand Geltz. As a royal Prussian forester, he was involved in founding the Association of German Quality Wine Estates (VDP) and from his family comes the Geltz-Zilliken vineyards, whose Riesling flows into Ferdinand’s Gin.
Hand-picked Riesling grapes from the Zilliken Vineyard from steep slate slopes of the great location of the Saarburger Rausch are key to this German gin’s character. The combination of Andreas Vallendar’s craftsmanship and over 30 finely matched botanicals from their own vineyards make Ferdinand’s one of the highest quality German gin spirits.
