Four Pillars Christmas Gin 2020 700ml
Four Pillars Christmas Gin 2020 is a once a year limited edition Christmas offering by Four Pillars Distillery in Healesville Victoria that always sells out.
When Four Pillar's distiller Cam was growing up, his late mum Wilma, would make Christmas puddings on Derby Day while the rest of the family watched the races. Cam started distilling Christmas puddings on Derby Day a couple of years ago and has done this each year since then, by putting them in the botanical basket of Four Pillar's still and distilling a base of juniper, cinnamon, star anise, coriander seed and angelica over the top of them. The secret to making a gin that tastes like Christmas is blending Christmas puddings with gin aged in 80 year old muscat barrels with addition of Classic Ruthergin Muscat, which fills the palate with a touch of richness.
The 2020 release label depicts warmth, closeness and togetherness for a traditional Christmas Day in a surreal Australian landscape with Wilma's pudding at the centre, for all to share.
Classic juniper and a hint of cinnamon on the nose. Rich, luscious palate with a hint of sweetness from the Muscat and richness from the extended barrel ageing.
We think Four Pillars Christmas Gin is perfect sipped neat or poured over your pudding, but if you’re looking to try something more creative, try this ‘Cobbler’ recipe, created by Four Pillars Creative Director of Gin Drinks, James Irvine.
