Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Gin Goldcap 2021
An award-winning range of products from the 200 year old Avadis Distillery, infused with wines from the 275 year old Zilliken winery; Ferdinand’s owes its name to the Prussian District Forester, Ferdinand Geltz, who also co-founded the VDP Mosel Saar Ruwer Zilliken estate, one of Germany’s finest vineyards. Only the heart of the once-a-year distillation finds its way into Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Goldcap. Dried Riesling grapes, mirabelles, cocoa beans, acacia shoots grown in their own forest and pears from the Saar, give this extra-small batch gin a special character of its own. Only the highest award winning Zilliken wines sold at auction are used for the infusion. 36 regional botanicals, pot still distilled, proprietary grain spirit made from a blend of wheat, rye and spelt. Fragrant, natural notes of lavender and lemongrass, with a touch of citrus following shortly after. Flavours of lemons, limes, and thyme with warming notes of ginger.
