FOURPILLARSSCG

Established in 2013, Four Pillars is a small artisan craft gin distillery located in Australia's Yarra Valley, close to Melbourne. In 2015 they moved into a new distillery that houses their original copper still Wilma and her two new siblings, Jude and Eileen. All three of the stills are manufactured by Carl in Germany and deliver unbelievable purity of spirit, drawing extraordinary botanical flavour from the combination of rare, native and traditional botanicals they use. These are multi-award winning gins and represent some of the best craft spirits Australia has to offer.

The Four Pillars Barrel Aged Sherry Cask Gin is made from a cask solera that is made up of 42 casks, some from Spain and some from friends who make famous Australian fortified wines, historically known as "Australian Sherry" and now known as Apera. They are much older than the Chardonnay barrels, varying in age from 15 to 35 years old. These barrels were first filled more than a year ago, and this is the first solera release taken only from the bottom row of barrels.

Slightly deeper in colour, this is a rich, intense and layered barrel aged gin. A pine needle quality underpins some amazing complexity. The residual Sherry and Apera characters have integrated beautifully with the deeper cassia and star anise flavours - think dried fruits and nuts.
