The Ferdinand’s Gin story began among the ancient vines in 2013.
Named after the first local Royal Prussian District Forester Forester, Ferdinand Geltz, the Ferdinand’s brand takes its inspiration from the bountiful terroir of the Saar region. A timeless design and exquisite attention to detail in the crafting of the liquid, build upon a historical legacy of fine wines from world‘s most famous Riesling wine region.
