One of the few craft gins made in Australia, Four Pillars was founded in 2013 in the Yarra Valley close to Melbourne using 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 the four pillars of the gin; the still, the water, the botanicals and their passion for craft.
Specifically designed to make an excellent Negroni, Four Pillars took the base botanicals used in their Rare Dry gin and upped the amount of Tasmanian pepperberry leaf and cinnamon. Then they added an exotic West African spice called Grains of Paradise. This is one of the most unusual spices in the world, with clove and sichuan characters. But although very powerful, the spice tends to glow rather than become hot. They also decided to use beautiful organic blood oranges in the botanical basket, as well as some ginger. These wonderfully fragrant fresh botanicals help lift the spice to another level.
Juniper berries, whole organic blood oranges, lemon myrtle, coriander seeds, Tasmanian pepperberry leaf, angelica root, cardamom, star anise, cassia bark, lavender, green Szechuan, red Szechuan, cubeb berries, turmeric, pink grapefruit, ginger, grains of paradise, finger limes, gyokuro, desert lime, macadamia nut, quandong and red pine.
Four Pillars Spiced Negroni Gin is a highly aromatic, rich and spicy gin with great power and intensity. Richly spiced, with the cinnamon and ginger standing out rather festively.
Negroni! Premium tonic garnished with a clove studded orange wheel.
