Saar Dry Gin Goldcap 500ml
Gin has a new and unparalleled gold standard. Only created once a year, Ferdinand’s unique small batch Saar Dry Gin Goldcap is crafted using dried Riesling grapes, mirabelles (a plum so wickedly delicious they’re illegal in America), cocoa beans, acacia shoots and pears. It’s infused with the highest awarded wine produced by the 275-year-old Weingut Forstmeister Geltz Zilliken’s, which is bought at great expense at auction for the job.
The result is an almost Cognac-esque concentration and a showstopper of a gin. Smooth and laced with honeyed fruit, pine needles, woody herbs, pineapple mint, caramelised orange peel, ginger and peppery juniper. By some alchemy, Ferdinand’s have created something truly golden; Harvey Nichols recommends sipping it neat, over ice or mixed into a Martini to allow its polished gilt curves to shine.
Ferdinand’s Goldcap is not only a true original, it’s also a perfect gift for wine geeks. It takes its name from Ferdinand Geltz, a forester who helped found the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer VDP – an organisation consisting of many of Germany’s top wine producers to maintain the quality of their region’s products. Ferdinand’s exquisite spirits are handcrafted by the talented Andreas Vallendar of the 200-year-old Avadis Distillery using wines made by Dorothee Zilliken of Weingut Forstmeister Geltz Zilliken, a Riesling producer that has “acquired a great reputation in Germany over the past five or more years” according to Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. Ferdinand’s grow their own quince and lemon thyme, two of their key botanicals, and use local sloe, rosehip, angelica, hop blossom and rose, as well as lavender grown on fallow vineyards and more exotic herbs and spices from around the world.
