A small Australian distillery.
A modern Australian gin.
Four Pillars is a small distillery in the Yarra Valley. Our ambition is to make the best craft spirits in Australia.
Our first product was a Rare Dry Gin, crafted in a truly modern Australian style by capturing the flavours of both Asia and the Mediterranean. Using a copper pot still from CARL in Germany, Four Pillars Distillery produces in small batches of just 460 bottles.
When we launched this labour of love in late 2013 we sold out our first two batches immediately - and you can now see Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin on the shelves of the best independent retailers and have a taste at many great bars and restaurants across the country. This gin has already been awarded two medals in 2014: a Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and a silver at the London International Wine and Spirits Competition.
On World Gin Day, 14 June 2014, we released our first Barrel Aged Gin. This very limited release gin was rested in a solera of French oak barriques for between three and six months to create a complex, delicious and entirely too sippable gin. And it also sold out within weeks.
We’re now about to launch our third 'baby' - a Navy Strength Gin which, at 58.8% ABV, is ‘gunpowder proof’. Using the same base combination of botanicals as the Rare Dry, we’ve added fresh ginger and turmeric to complement the Asian spices, and replaced two thirds of the whole oranges with fresh finger limes. This final ingredient is hard to come by which makes our Navy Strength a seasonal distillation, with just one release a year.
Four Pillars holds occasional distillery tastings, tours and masterclasses where you can learn more about the gin and distilling in general, and buy our gin direct from the distillery (along with some other awesome distillery-only products).
