Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin
Gin meets Shiraz grapes in the best possible way. Cool climate Yarra Valley Shiraz grapes steeped in our award winning Rare Dry Gin for 8 weeks with no added sugar.The resulting gin is an incredibly vibrant ruby color, which turns iridescent pink when mixed with soda. Aromatically it has fresh pine needles, incredible spice, and a peppery, dense raspberry character. The palate is lovely and sweet, with long juniper and spice characters on the finish. Enjoy with soda, lemon tonic, or in a bloody variation on a classic cocktail.
Four Pillars Gin is a craft distillery based in Healesville in Melbourne’s Yarra Valley. Founded in 2013, they make gin. Actually, they make gins, plural. From the original multi-award winning Rare Dry Gin to the only gin in the world made just for a Negroni, from a Navy Strength Gin that is best in its class to their entirely unique Bloody Shiraz Gin. And they are always based on the four pillars of great copper stills, pristine Yarra Valley water, traditional, exotic and native botanicals, and a massive amount of love and attention to detail at every stage of the production process. Four Pillars Gin brings a delicious and very modern Australian take on gin to the word, making a wide range of gins. When it gets down to it, everything done is designed to elevate the craft of distilling gin in Australia. And when left with beautiful gin-steamed oranges at the end of a distillation, what do they make? Four Pillars Orange Marmalade and Breakfast Negroni Marmalade.
Enjoying an enthusiastic resurgence in modern cocktail culture, Gin, a.k.a. ‘Dutch Courage,’ was originally touted as a 16th century cure for cowardice and stomach ailments. Arguably the broadest and most dynamic category of spirits in terms of flavor profiles and production styles, Gin is a distilled grain spirit that derives its primary flavor from juniper berries and secondary flavors from a dazzling array of spices, herbs, fruits and botanicals. It is both produced and enjoyed all around the world and is most commonly mixed into cocktails such as the Martini or simply added to tonic water.
