Four Pillars Spiced Negroni Gin - 70cl - 43.8% 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.
Spiced Negroni has a fiery ginger to nose, joined by aromatic cloves and a hint of gorse-like sweetness. To taste, cardamom and peppery orange bloom across the mouth – big, sweet and lively. The spice – as intended – is booming, growing in intensity across the palate. The signature Australian botanicals of Four Pillar’s Rare Dry Gin are louder here, with pepper berry leaf in particular sparking at the tongue.
Bold as brass, this is a gin that cannot only survive Campari and Sweet Vermouth, but which can take them to a whole new level.
Sure, with a sweet orange as a garnish this makes for a fine G&T, but why go rogue when this is tailor made for a Negroni?
