Home grown freshly harvested pear quinces grown right next to the distillery at Saar Dry Gin, go in to form the regional homage to traditional sloe gin: Ferdinand's Saar Quince Gin. Master Distiller Andreas Vallendar combines carefully hand-picked Riesling grapes from the Zilliken estate and over 30 finely balanced botanicals from the vineyards and our own cultivation.
The Quince Gin is infused with 2011 Rausch Kabinett, which in 2013 was awarded 92 points by Gault Millau and was distinguished as the best cabinet wine of the year. The Royal Prussian District Forester Ferdinand Geltz not only gave his name to this Riesling-infused Saar Dry Gin but he was also the historical co-founder of the VDP Mosel-Saar-Ruwer growers’ group. This golden gin from the Saar symbolises the perfect balance between sweet, sour and bitter.
