AVADIS DISTILLERY

Distillery
Founded in 1824
The Vallendar family has been distilling Spirits for several generations on their estate which was founded in 1824 in Wincheringen. The distillery is located on a range of hills between the Wine regions in the tri-border area of France, Luxembourg and Germany (Saar-Mosel).

Andreas Vallendar comes from a family with a long tradition of distilling fruit Liqueurs and Spirits. After studying beverage technology at Saarburg, he founded the Avadis Distillery. A modern bonded distillery based on tradition and cultivating innovation.

Partnering with Spirits marketers Erik Wimmers and Denis Reinhardt of Capulet & Montague Ltd, and alongside Dorothee Zilliken (who has been running the VDP Forstmeister Geltz-Zilliken and has studied viniculture, viticulture, and enology), their estate has been producing award-winning Wines for more than 270 years.

The fruity and sweet Riesling produced on the 11-hectare vineyard are matured fully in wooden casks and stored three stories below ground. Ferdinand's Saar Dry Gin is infused with more than 30 botanicals sourced straight from the VDP Forstmeister Geltz-Zilliken vineyards.

Masterfully mixing 30 botanicals is not an easy task, but Avadis has not only taken on the challenge but upped the ante by adding Schiefer Riesling after distillation. This adds semi-sweet flavors, resulting in an elegant and fruity Gin. The juniper is present but subtle.

Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Gin owes its name to the royal Prussian District Forester Ferdinand Geltz, the historical figure who also co-founded the VDP Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Zilliken estate.
