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.
A Navy Strength addition to the Four Pillars range of gins distilled in Australia! Not only has this been bottled at an intense 58.8% ABV, they've also added finger limes to their botanical selection (which also includes Tasmanian pepperberry, lemon myrtle, cinnamon, cardamom, coriander seeds, star anise, juniper, lavender, angelica root and whole oranges).
Four Pillars Navy Strength Gin was recently awarded Best Gin at the Hong Kong International Wine and Spirit Competition 2016, and has been twice been awarded Master status at the Global Gin Masters (in 2015 and 2016).
With lifted aromatics of lime curd, pine needles, and fragrant spices with a vanilla character which pulls it all together. The palate is intense - sweet and juicy - but it is still very clean.
