Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin 70cl
Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin 70cl is created with a limited amount of Yarra Valley Shiraz grapes from the 2017 vintage, and is steeped in gin for eight weeks to make Bloody Shiraz Gin. This gin has an incredibly rich, deep purple colour, which turns iridescent pink when mixed with tonic or soda. Aromatically it has fresh pine needles, citrus and spice, and a clear peppery, dense raspberry character. The palate is lovely and sweet, with a long juniper and spice character on the finish.
Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin is best consumed within two years of vintage. The gin is unfiltered and will develop secondary fruit characters beyond two years.Read more...

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.
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.
