Gin

Gin is a spirit which derives its predominant flavour from juniper berries (Juniperus communis). From its earliest origins in the Middle Ages, gin has evolved over the course of a millennium from a herbal medicine to an object of commerce in the spirits industry. Gin was developed on the basis of the older Jenever, and became widely popular in Great Britain when William of Orange, leader of the Dutch Republic, occupied the English and Scottish thrones with his wife Mary. Today, the gin category is one of the most popular and widely distributed range of spirits, and is represented by products of various origins, styles, and flavour profiles that all revolve around juniper as a common ingredient.

 

Juniper-flavoured spirit drinks

This includes the earliest class of gin, which is produced by pot distilling a fermented grain mash to moderate strength (e.g. 68% ABV), and then redistilling it with botanicals to extract the aromatic compounds. It must be bottled at a minimum of 30% ABV. Juniper-flavoured spirit drinks may also be sold under the names Wacholder or Genebra.

 

Gin

This is a juniper-flavoured spirit made not via the redistillation of botanicals, but by simply adding approved natural flavouring substances to a neutral spirit of agricultural origin. The predominant flavour must be juniper.

 

Distilled gin

Distilled gin is produced exclusively by redistilling ethyl alcohol of agricultural origin with an initial strength of 96% ABV (the azeotrope of water and ethanol) in stills traditionally used for gin, in the presence of juniper berries and of other natural botanicals, provided that the juniper taste is predominant. Gin obtained simply by adding essences or flavourings to ethyl alcohol of agricultural origin is not distilled gin.

 

London gin

London gin is obtained exclusively from ethyl alcohol of agricultural origin with a maximum methanol content of 5 grams per hectolitre of 100% ABV equivalent, whose flavour is introduced exclusively through the re-distillation in traditional stills of ethyl alcohol in the presence of all the natural plant materials used, the resultant distillate of which is at least 70% ABV. London gin may not contain added sweetening exceeding 0.1 grams of sugars per litre of the final product, nor colorants, nor any added ingredients other than water. The term London gin may be supplemented by the term "dry".

Aviation Gin

Aviation belongs to an entirely new category of dry gins. These gins embody a shift away from the usual overabundance of juniper toward a more forward balance of botanicals. Aviation explores the rich, floral and savory notes of lavender, cardamom, and sarsaparilla to capture the lushness, spice, creativity, and freshness of the Pacific Northwest. In this way, we offer the American palate its first real taste of American gin.

Farmer's Organic Gin

Botanicals in Organic Balance

Farmer’s Organic Gin is handcrafted in small batches from carefully selected botanicals and the purest grains. Providing a pristinely clean palette for the artful infusion of botanicals, the distillate is made from sustainably farmed grain grown in the U.S. Certified organic by the USDA, Farmer’s Gin possesses a complexity and unique taste profile due to its remarkably balanced selection of botanicals, including juniper, elderflower, lemon grass, coriander, and angelica root.

 

Why we call it Farmer’s

In order to produce a flavorful organic gin, we sought out farmers dedicated to sustainability and preserving the earth. We found four farms growing organic crops that could help us create the highest quality organic gin. We think that there is no better way to honor our farmers than by naming our organic gin after them.

Four Pillars Barrel Aged Gin

To create our Barrel Aged Gin we first batch distill in our CARL stills using the same botanicals as our Rare Dry Gin. Then we transfer the gin into a solera of nine French oak chardonnay barrels, each with a subtly different character. Every six months, Cameron tastes the barrels and then blends a portion of each to create this complex, nuanced and entirely too sippable gin.

This is the fifth release to come from the barrels in our original solera, which still retain some gin from the first time we filled them on Christmas Eve 2013. Solera No_5 shows a nice balance between intensity and fragrance, with the barrels continuing to build complexity and flavour without losing the primary botanical characters. The solera continues to integrate the oak and botanicals while building weight and texture on the palate.

The colour is a little darker than Solera No_4, which is due to an extra couple of months in oak. Aromas of resinny juniper, preserved lemon and ginger have built nicely in barrel. Despite not using any ginger in the distillations this solera has an almost signature preserved ginger character. It is richly spiced and intense with a soft mouthfeel. Sip neat, over ice, or in a classic Martinez.

Four Pillars Bartender Series Spiced Negroni Gin

This gin was originally the result of a conversation between Cameron (our distiller) and Jason (then Group Bars Manager at Keystone, and one of the World’s Top Ten Bartenders) back in 2014 - they wanted to create a gin specifically for the Negroni. Something to cut through the Campari and vermouth. And as the Negroni has always been a favourite at Four Pillars, Cameron jumped at the chance to make the first collaboration in our Bartender Series a tribute to the very definition of a perfectly balanced cocktail.

Four Pillars Spiced Negroni Gin is a highly aromatic, rich and (yes) spicy gin with great power and intensity. First, we took our base botanicals and upped the amount of Tasmanian pepperberry leaf and cinnamon. Then we added an exotic West African spice called Grains of Paradise. This is one of the most unusual spices in the world, with clove and sichuan characters.  But although very powerful, the spice tends to glow rather than become hot. 

We also decided to use beautiful organic blood oranges in the botanical basket, as well as some ginger.  These wonderfully fragrant fresh botanicals help lift the spice to another level. Finally, we opened up the plates to add weight and intensity to the gin.

Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin

They steeped Yarra Valley Shiraz grapes in with Rare Dry Gin for eight weeks. This resultant gin is 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 sweet, with a long juniper and spice character on the finish.

Four Pillars Navy Gin

Four Pillars Navy Strength is a gin very much in the style of the Rare Dry Gin but with the volume turned up slightly beyond 11. At 58.8% ABV the gin can support some more robust and interesting botanicals, so there are three new botanicals that are both new (and fresh), including fresh turmeric and ginger. Together they have heightened the spiciness of the gin, and the turmeric in particular has added weight and a lovely earthiness to the palate. Also in the botanical basket about half the normal oranges have been replaced with some explosive native finger limes, grown in Byron Bay. They have an intensity of flavour and acid that is almost impossible to believe, and in the basket they help the gin attain super citrus notes and lovely high-toned freshness.
