Gin’s popularity have boomed in recent year’s with craft distillers releasing increasingly unusual and creative infusions on to the market.

This latest innovation sees Ferdinand’s bring wine and gin together to create a Riesling wine infused 44% abv gin.

Described as “fun” and “delightful” to the palate, Ferdinand’s Saar Dry gin is infused with carefully picked Riesling grapes from the steep shale slopes of the Zilliken estate on the Saarburger Rausch site in Germany.

Before being infused with Riesling wine, the gin is distilled with botanicals including juniper, lavender, rosa canina, sloe, rosehip, angelica, hop blossom, rose, coriander, ginger and lemon-scented thyme.

Produced by Master Distiller Andreas Vallendar, Ferdinand’s gin is distilled exclusively in small batches using regional, usually home-grown ingredients, and avoiding the use of industrial production methods.

The spirit is named after Royal Prussian District Forester, Ferdinand Geltz, the historical figure who also co-founded the VDP Mosel-Saar-Ruwer growers’ group.

Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Gin is expected to be released in the UK in February 2014 priced at £17.95 a bottle.

    Is this now available? Who stocks it?

  2. Paul Neal says:

    Hi Alan, I appreciate this reply is a little late. It took longer then expected to get the gin onto our shores. However you can now purchase Ferdinand’s from both Amathus and Master of Malt to name a few.

    hope this finds you and helps.

    Paul
