Four Pillars - Christmas Gin
Four Pillars Christmas Gin smells like gin and tastes like Christmas.
To make this special annual release, Cam distills Christmas puddings (made to his mum’s recipe) by putting them in the botanical basket and distilling a base of juniper, cinnamon, star anise, coriander seed and angelica over the top of them. The gin is ages in several Muscat barrels that are over 100 years old, including two 125-year-old ex-William Grants whisky barrels that stored Rutherglen Muscat for 80 years. Cam adds a slight tweak of Muscat to finish – Classic Rutherglen matured at the distillery in old puncheons that used to hold Pedro Ximenez in the Barossa Valley. This rounds out the palate and adds a layer of richness.
Aromatics of classic juniper and a hint of cinnamon lead into a rich, luscious palate laced with a hint of sweetness from the Muscat and richness from the extended barrel ageing. Sip it neat, mix it with ginger ale or beer, or try it in some great cocktails.
