Four Pillars Christmas Gin 700ml
Four Pillars Christmas Gin is the creation of Four Pillar's head distiller, Cameron. This is his tribute to the four things he loves: Australia, Christmas, Gin and his late mum Wilma. Each year, Wilma would make Christmas puddings on Victoria Day while the rest of the family watched the races. So a couple of years ago, on Derby Day, Cam put some puds made to her recipe in the botanical basket of Wilma (Four Pillars' still) and distilled a gin. Cam was also working on a gin aged in Four Pillars' collection of 80-year-old muscat barrels. He decided to blend these together and add a tweak of classic Rutherglen Muscat. The result smells like Gin and tastes like Christmas. Sip straight over ice, simply mix with ginger ale or make a cracking Martinez.
This years artwork is by the incredibly talented painter Jane Reynolds. Jane's art is all about the relationship between colour, form, and light. The team at Four Pillars challenged Jane to come up with one of her signature hyper-real compositions that would celebrate the colour and iconography of Christmas. Her response was this stunning abstract Christmas scene, with the presents arranged the tree.
The team at Four Pillars suggest this combo for a lovely festive cocktail:
NO.1 Gin + Ginger
