History

We established Four Pillars with a focus on gin. But great gin doesn’t just make itself. We recognised that our real focus would need to be on the craft of distilling. If we could elevate this area of expertise in Australia, and bring a modern Australian sensibility to the process, then maybe we could make a gin worth shouting about. Two years later we have five different gins, multiple gold medals at international spirits competitions and now a brand new distillery operation and tasting bar. But the story starts back in 2013 we embarked on a tour of the US West Coast, from Portland down to San Francisco, identifying distilling techniques and equipment we admired. What stood out above all to us was that all the gins we loved on our trip were made in a Carl still. 18 months later, we took delivery of our own custom-built still from Carl of Germany, and we called her Wilma (after Cameron’s beautiful but explosively tempered late mother). And Wilma turned out to be amazing, drawing extraordinary botanical flavour from a combination of rare, native and traditional botanicals. She delivers an unbelievable purity of spirit (the gin comes out of Wilma at 93.5% ABV) despite our unique approach of distilling our benchmark Rare Dry Gin with fresh, juicy biodynamic and highly-aromatic oranges. And she has now been joined by her larger sister Jude, and significantly smaller sister Eileen - both also made by Carl. We hope you agree we’re on the right path. The judges at a number of prestigious international competitions must think so, as we''ve been awarded a Double Gold, Gold or Master status for all our mainstay gins in the past two years.

Production

I'd be crazy not to use the incredible calibre of cool climate fruit available to Four Pillars in the Yarra Valley. So the team steeped Yarra Valley Shiraz grapes in high proof Rare Dry Gin for eight weeks. The fruit was de-stemmed but kept mainly as whole berries, and the tanks were kept cold and stirred daily. After eight weeks the fruit was pressed before blended with more Rare Dry Gin. The resultant gin is an incredibly rich, deep purple colour, which turns iridescent pink when mixed with tonic or soda.
