You know that we at ALANDIA love premium spirits. First and foremost Absinthe, but then close by Gin. Therefore we have as well a featured Gin section in the ALANDIA Online shop. Today we want to present you a very interesting new addition: Ferdinands Quince Gin
This is the second product innovation from the team around Ferdinands Saar Dry Gin. For their first product, the regular Ferdinands Saar Dry Gin, a Riesling infusion (German white wine) is used to create a very special fruityness. Their second product follows this innovative path. Ferdinands Quince Gin plays homage to the British sloe Gin tradition but the distillers substitute the traditional sloes with locally grown quinces from the distillerys´ garden. The result is a sweet Gin liqueur, perfectly for a summery Gin & Tonic. Ferdinands Quince Gin can also be enjoyed on ice or mixed with champagne (Quince Sprizz). We indeed like the innovativeness and sweet and fruity taste of Ferdinands Quince Gin and can recommend it to every Gin enthusiast who appreciates the allure of something special.
Interesting Info: The quince is not a traditional Gin botanical. Nevertheless it can give the final distillate a pleasant bitter fruityness. Historically, quinces (lat. cydonia oblonga) are native to South-west Asia (Iran, Pakistan, Uzbekistan) but were later introduced to Europe. Today Turkey and China are the #1 cultivators of this fruit with more than 120,000 metric tons per year.
