in stock

Ferdinand’s Saar Quince Gin is a sticky sweet gin with a huge thwack of fruit but none of the artificial flavourings of the modern fruit gin movement. Complex, with a beautiful grape quality, this is a gin that wine fans should seek out!

Ferdinand’s Saar Quince Gin is light and fruity, with soft rose petals and caramelised quince notes coating the tongue in a crackled sugar glaze. Absolutely gorgeous – try pairing with cheese as an alternative after dinner sipper.

Key Flavours

Fresh Fruit
"Simply stunning. It's part gin, part fruit liqueur, part crazy fruity desert wine and somehow all of those factors have combined to be so much more than the sum of their parts. Sip it on the rocks with a massive cheese platter."

About this product

After making their Dry Gin, the Ferdinand’s Saar team add a splash of 2011 Rausch Kabinett wine and a healthy dose of quinces, harvested next door to the distillery. Ferdinand’s Saar Quince Gin boarders on a liqueur, bottled at 30%.

Ferdinand’s Saar is crafted by Master Distiller Andreas Vallendar, at his Avadis Distillery in Wincheringen. He was almost certainly one of the early pioneers of the gin-wine hybrid, and by using wine, the first to do a liquid based post infusion.

The Avadis Distillery was founded by Andreas, Dorothee Zilliken, Denis Reinhardt and Erik Wimmers, four friends who got together to create products designed to be ‘aromatic reproductions’ or their home region.

Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Gin has 30 organic botanicals in the mix and a healthy dose of Schiefer Riesling wine, it’s a most unusual proposition, and one that got in way ahead of the Craft Gin trend.

"On the nose there's fragrant lavender and lemongrass that shine out, while citrus, herbal thyme and a whirlwind of Riesling induced flavours tornado around the palate, before warming notes of ginger set in on the finish."

Gold Cap Gin is a limited edition take on the flagship Ferdinand’s Gin. The same base gin with 30 organic botanicals is made, but here it is cut to strength with a healthy dose of utterly exquisite...

"Pricey, sure, but worth it. It's a genuine vintage made using some of the most highly regarded wine, meaning it's not just supercharged Ferdinand's Saar Gin, it's a completely unique one off that can never be repeated."
