About Gin  and  Genever from Germany
The spirits industry is a strong and varied one in Germany. Most famous are the brandies and eau-de-vie, made from fruits such as cherry, pear and apple. The term schnapps can refer to an eau-de-vie or it can simply mean a strong alcoholic drink. There are also vodkas (flavored and unflavored), London-style gins and whiskeys produced in Germany. Most are consumed locally; few are exported outside Europe.

Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Gin
89 points
Clear color. Aromas and flavors of celery seed, dried lime, citronella, and kiwi with a velvety, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a seamless, complex, medium-long finish displaying suggestions of hints of juniper, earl grey, fresh cut grass, and starfruit. A citrusy and grassy Gin that will perk up cocktails; this is a contemporary and bold take that will offer a wide array of cocktail play options.
