Ferdinand’s Gin

The Vallendar family have been distilling fine spirits for several generations in the sleepy village of Wincheringen. Here, artisanship and alchemy combine, with the results being deeply rooted in the proud traditions of the region. The true essence of the Saar – an elegant combination of old world crafts and fresh inspirations – distilled to perfection.

Ferdinand’s Gin

One of the most fascinating wine regions in Germany is situated in the tri-border region between Germany, Luxembourg and France where the Saar meets the Mosel. Here, at Ferdinand’s Gin, in the region of the Saar where the most valued Riesling-Producers of the whole country are located in between gently curved hills, the story of the Riesling-Infused Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Gin begins in 2013.

Named after the first local Royal Prussian district forester Ferdinand Geltz, Ferdinand’s takes its inspiration from the bountiful Saar region and their traditions always the guiding principle „inspired by our heritage“ in mind.

CLIMATE

Nestled between steep valley sides, the Saar region enjoys a unique micro-climate. Summers end late, with long, warm days ripening the fruits, and cold nights retaining the signature acidity. The gentle breezes caress the vines and fruit trees and nature brings forth its rewards each year with a bountiful harvest.

TERROIR

The Saar winds its way leisurely through mineral-rich shale soil, where generations-old vines cling to the valley sides. The topography, geology and climatic conditions bless this ancient region with a treasure trove of flora and fauna. Many of these local flowers, fruits and herbs form part of the botanical cornucopia used in Ferdinand’s spirits.

PROVENANCE

The Vallendar family have been distilling fine spirits for several generations in the sleepy village of Wincheringen. Here, artisanship and alchemy combine, with the results being deeply rooted in the proud traditions of the region. The true essence of the Saar – an elegant combination of old world crafts and fresh inspirations – distilled to perfection.

RIESLING

Known as the „Queen of white grapes”, the delicate, distinctive and highly aromatic Riesling wines produced over three centuries by the world-renowned Forstmeister-Geltz Zilliken VDP-Estate, are at the heart of Ferdinand’s spirits. These wines form part of the legacy of the Saar-Moselle region, historically one of the most important wine growing areas in Europe.

TRADITION

The Saar has always been an important confluence of regional traditions and ideas. Ferdinand’s spirits – named after one of the figureheads and guardians of these local traditions; Royal Prussian Forester, Ferdinand Geltz (1851-1925) – are steeped in the character and heritage of the region, and faithfully uphold our duty to protect this unique eco-system.
