Each year, Four Pillars
steep some of the best Yarra Valley Shiraz grapes in gin, and after eight weeks, the fruit is pressed before blending with more Rare Dry Gin.
This 2018 release has great depth of colour and is more vibrant than the 2017 vintage, carrying beautiful purples and reds to bottle. Flavour-wise it is showing dark fruit, red berry, spice, plenty of that classic Yarra Valley Shiraz white pepper and a lovely ginny character that carries those grape aromas – making it unmistakably gin. The palate is lovely and sweet, with long juniper and spice characters to finish.
The ABV is 37.8%, unlike Sloe Gin where the alcohol content is less than 30%, making it a perfect cocktail gin.
