Four Pillars Australian Christmas Gin 2020 700mL
The 2020 Four Pillars Australian Christmas Gin is now available at Wine Sellers Direct. Every year this Gin release celebrates the Healesville sites opening, and a tradition that solidifies the Christmas Spirit for Gin lovers every Derby Day when it's available.
A true fan favourite, with each year bringing a unique take on the versatile product. You'll get aromatics of classic juniper and a hint of cinnamon, backed up with a rich, luscious palate with a hint of sweetness from the Muscat and richness from the extended barrel ageing. More than ever, it smells like gin and tastes like Christmas. Sip it neat, over ice, or mixed with ginger (ale or beer).
At the time of this creation he was also working on a gin aged in 125-year-old ex-Grants Whisky barrels that stored Rutherglen Muscat for 80 years, which he blended with the pudding gin. To finish, he added a slight tweak of Rutherglen Classic Muscat to round out the palate with a touch of richness.
The result smelt like gin and tasted like Christmas. With juniper-led Christmas tree notes and plum pudding character it is perfect sipped over ice, mixed with ginger (ale or beer), or made into one of these delicious cocktails.
For our 2017 release, Cam added a touch of the Four Pillars own muscat that has been sitting in barrels which previously aged Pedro Ximenez. So there was more depth, more complexity. An even more Christmas-y gin.
Since 2018 Four Pillars have made the gin even more special, as the puddings for the distillation were made by the three founders and their kids - Mackenzies, Gregors and Joneses.
It is, without a doubt, their most lovingly crafted gin, from the multiple techniques and processes that have gone into making it taste extraordinary, to the original artwork commissioned for each label - from 2016's 'Warm and Christmas' by Australian artist Jade Suine, to 2017's Christmas Beetle by Darren Song, to 2018's 'Basking in the Sun' by Melburnian Stephen Baker, 2019's label was the work of artist Tim Summerton, with 'Flame Trees', and in 2020 Four Pillars has announced Lucy Dyson as the creator of the 2020 artwork which adorns the bottle. Lucy has created a rich work of collage art , celebrating coming together with loved ones to share in the festive season.
