Four Pillars Chardonnay Barrel Gin
£35.99

This is the seventh release from the original Chardonnay barrel solera and has had a full year in barrel.


The botanical oils have developed and changed dramatically, whilst still remaining distinctively gin. The juniper base has become more textured, while the spices show developed intensity and fragrance.


As with previous releases the preserved ginger character (thanks to the cardamom) is amazing and sits nicely with crushed coriander and preserved citrus notes. The oak continues to contribute to colour and sweetness, weight and texture. The finish is lovely and dry.

Description

Details

One of the few craft gins made in Australia, Four Pillars was founded in 2013 in the Yarra Valley – close to Melbourne – and uses a CARL copper pot still called Wilma to produce its Dry Gin. Funded through Pozible – an Australian version of Kickstarter – Four Pillars is the brainchild of wine making and marketing duo Stuart Gregor and Cameron Mackenzie and brand guru Matt Jones, who want to produce the best craft spirits Australia has to offer.

The name Four Pillars was chosen as a reflection of their still, the water, the botanicals and their passion for craft. In many ways all four are not just well represented and apparent in the end product, they also lay a great foundation for future developments and other gins the team may want to produce. Four Pillars Gin is now sold in leading retailers and the best bars across Australia, and has been available in the UK since October 2014.

The Four Pillars team’s initial focus was to establish their Rare Dry Gin, but they have since launched a plethora of spirits. There’s Barrel-Aged Gin and Navy Strength Gin in the range, and a Bartender Series featuring Spiced Negroni Gin and, in another ode to the land, Modern Australian Gin. The team will soon focus on making an Old Tom Barrel-Aged Gin, a Sloe Gin and there are rumours down the grape vine of a couple of other exciting projects as well.
