Four Pillars Australian Christmas Gin Edition 2018 70cl is the creation of Cameron MacKenzie, the owner and distiiller, who wanted to make a tribute to the four things he loves: Australia, Christmas, Gin and his late mum, Wilma.

Each year Wilma would make Christmas puddings on Victoria Derby Day while the rest of the family watches the races. So a couple of years a ago Cameron put some puds made to her recipe in the botanical basket of Wilma (the still) and distilled a gin. As he was also working on a gin aged in 80 years old Muscat barrels, he decided to blend these together and add a bit of Classic rutherglen Muscat.

The result is a Gin that tastes like Christmas. 

Each year Four Pillars feature the work of a different artist on the labels of its Australian Christmas Gin. For 2018, they've got Stephen Baker's 'Basking in the Sun' on the label, which represents what apparently people do on Christmas in Australia.

The IWSC Award for International Gin Producer of the Year is recognition of Four Pillars Gin's leading role in the world of gin up to and including 2019, creating some of the most awarded gins on the planet and leading the way for craft spirits producers around the world through its commitment to collaboration, creativity, design and world-class experiences, all anchored by its home in Healesville, Yarra Valley.

The award for International Gin Producer of the Year caps off a pretty epic 2019 for Four Pillars who, among a bagful of accolades both local and international, became the first ever local distillery to be awarded Australia's Liquor Brand of the Year at the Australian Liquor Industry Awards.
The taste for this awesome gin is purely a remarkable pot-pourry of Christmas Pudding distilled with Star anise, Cinnamon, Angelica and Coriander.

Yarra Valley-based distillery Four Pillars Gin was recently presented with the industry's greatest accolade, the 2019 International Gin Producer of the Year at the 50th Annual International Wine and Spirits Competition in London. 

Four Pillars Gin was established in 2013 in the Yarra Valley on the outskirts of Melbourne and has become one of the world's benchmark distilleries, Australia's No.1 craft spirit and a leading light in the Australian gin revolution. Four Pillars today produces around 100,000 cases of gin annually (equivalent to 600,000 bottles). Australia is in the middle of a gin boom which has seen consumption of locally-produced gin grow by 33% in 2018 and likely a similar number in 2019. There is estimated to be around 180 distilleries in Australia producing gin today. In 2013 there were fewer than 15. In the past five years, Australian consumption of gin has increased by 15.2% per annum and Four Pillars has grown at an average of 83.4% a year since its launch in 2013.
