Four Pillars Gin is a craft distillery based in Healesville in Melbourne’s Yarra Valley (Australia). Founded in 2013, they make gin. Actually they make gins, plural. From their original multi-award-winning Rare Dry Gin to the only gin in the world made just for a Negroni, from a Navy Strength Gin that is best in its class to our entirely unique Bloody Shiraz Gin.

Further information about this distillery and the products they sell will be available soon.

Award winning gin and my favourite Martini Gin

Four pillars have a lot of magnificent gins. My favourite gin in their Olive Leaf Gin which is as good in a gin and tonic with a sprig of Rosemary and a piece of fresh lemon peel (I like to express a little over the top and then add it to the serve) or, with orange peel and a couple of Sicilian olives as it is in a Dirty Martini (60ml Olive Leaf Gin, 20ml Dry Vermouth, 2 bar spoons of olive brine and however many olives you want to add-I use Sicilian Green olives in a jar and I put five olives on a cocktail pick. I do like a meal with my drink! I also add a small piece of fresh lemon peel to the serve. Seriously- this is my favourite Martini of all time and this gin makes it so easy to like and enjoy a Martini. 700ml | 43.8% ALC./VOL | $85 AUD Four Pillars have quite a range of gins and some are award winning so I will only mention a few here otherwise I will be writing a book. I should mention Shiraz Gin. I think this would be the most well know of their award-winning gins and it makes a wonderful serve neat over ice, with Mediterranean Tonic in a G&T and in cocktails. It pairs very well with lemon flavours if you want to explore cocktails. One of my recent ones- Pillar of Society- was 60ml Shiraz Gin, 60ml Coconut Water, 30ml Limoncello shaken with ice and strained into a chilled glass and then drizzle a tiny amount of Pomegranate Liqueur over the top. Garnish with edible flowers to make it look extra special and you will see in the photo below-I was also playing with some dry ice for a bit of fun. This gin is also magnificent in a Negroni- I use equal parts Shiraz gin, Sweet Vermouth and Ruby Bitters or Campari and garnish with some fresh orange peel twist. The Shiraz Gin gives this Negroni a different jammy twist and you must try if it Negronis are your thing. 700ml | 37.8% ALC./Vol. | $85 AUD At present I own bottles of the above-mentioned gins plus Rare Dry, Spiced Negroni Gin, Chardonnay Barrel (Drink neat over ice), Sherry Cask (Drink neat over ice) and Four Pillars X Herno. Some special editions of pre-made cocktails – Woodlands, Coastal, Metropolitan and Desert Negroni. Some gins I have tried while out and about – Changing Seasons, Modern Australian and Navy Strength. I haven’t met one yet I didn’t thoroughly enjoy. You cannot go wrong with a purchase from this distillery. Service has always been fast; postage and packaging are environmentally thoughtful and I love the funny notes I sometimes get written on packaging from the Four Pillars team- always brings a smile to my face. The bottle label is easily removed when the bottle is finished which I really appreciate as I like to re-use the bottles- they look great on the dinner table as water bottles and make a cute vase or I use them when I make homemade gins or sauces etc. The cocktail books that come with orders are also great editions.
