This gin was originally the result of a conversation between Cameron and Jason Williams.
Back then Jason was Manager of Sydney bars including The Rook and one of the World’s Top Ten Bartenders. Today he maintains that global accolade as Creative Director of Singapore’s esteemed Atlas Bar.
The two were equally obsessed with the Negroni, and wanted to make a gin specifically for this classic gin cocktail. They wanted something to cut through the Campari and vermouth.
And so it was, that our Spiced Negroni Gin became our first ever Bartender Series Gin collaboration.
First, we took our base botanicals and upped the amount of Tasmanian pepperberry leaf and cinnamon. Then we added an exotic West African spice called Grains of Paradise. This is one of the most unusual spices in the world, with clove and Sichuan characters. But although very powerful, the spice tends to glow rather than become hot.
We also decided to use beautiful organic blood oranges in the botanical basket, as well as some ginger. These wonderfully fragrant fresh botanicals help lift the spice to another level. Finally, we opened up the plates to add weight and intensity to the gin.
Four Pillars Spiced Negroni Gin is a highly aromatic, rich and (yes) spicy gin with great power and intensity.
We're pleased to announce our Spiced Negroni Gin has been awarded Master status at the Global Gin Masters two years in a row (2017 and 2018).
