Best German Contemporary Gin  World Gin Awards 2021

Hi, I’m Ralph,
Founder of Summerville Spirits. 

Ever since is was young, my biggest dream has been to live a carefree life, discovering the world without being held back by borders in any form. A “sunny” life surrounded by family and friends. For me, the essence of living is freedom, lightness and joy.

I am a free spirit through and through. Born in Lebanon and raised in Saudi Arabia, France and the USA. My family roots even lay in Italy and Argentina.

Through my international childhood it was always clear to me that later on I wanted a relaxed and uncomplicated life, wherever in the world. When I was working in Dubai, I met Christina from Germany by pure chance. Or was it? I fell completely in love. I gave up my international jet set life without hesitation and moved to Germany with her.

In my family, we mostly drank arak and pernod. But with my first sip of gin I realised this drink embodies something else: my own longing for freedom, lightness and joie de vivre. I was not looking for it, but it happened to me: Summerville would be my gin!

I looked for a distillery, worked on the branding and, as life goes, I found other people who could immediately identify with my lifelong dream. Together we built up sales over two years.
