Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin 2018 - 70cl - 37.8% ABV
Four Pillars is a craft distillery located in the heart of the Yarra Valley, Australia. The distillery, which launched in 2013, was amongst first to emerge from the country, and is a standard bearer for what Australian gin could or should be.
After a hot and humid December, the weather down under turned to perfect ripening conditions for the vines, resulting in two harvests - one early on for the bright raspberry flavours, and a second later on to capture the plum and dark cherry notes. Long story short, this year's vintage delivers the best of both worlds!
Slightly darker in colour than the 2017 vintage, 2018 brings dark fruits, red berry and spice to the palate, as well as the undeniable white pepper that is synonymous with the Yarra Valley Shiraz grape.
Best consumed within two years of bottling, once it's open it won't last long!
