Four Pillars started with the idea of making a kick-arse tonic many years ago but then thought ‘why not go all the way and create a great modern Australian gin?’
At the Four Pillars distillery the aim is to elevate the craft of distilling, so everything they make is crafted on four pillars.
No.1 – Stills – “Our magnificent copper pot stills, made by CARL in Germany.”
No.2 – Water – “The best in the world, from our home in the Yarra Valley.”
No.3 – Botanicals – “Some native to Australia, some sourced from around the world. Some dry, and some fresh.”
No.4 – Love – “A commitment to craft and attention to detail every step of the way.”
The full scope of the Four Pillars website can’t be fully replicated here, so we encourage you to visit yourself to read more about the distillery’s history and philosophy. A number of delicious cocktail recipes as well as their online store will get you well on your way to appreciating a new level of gin.
A visit to the physical distillery is, of course, also highly recommended.
