Christmas Gin 2018
For the third release of their annual Christmas Gin, Four Pillars have hooked up with Melbourne artist Stephen Baker to create a label that encapsulates the poolside summer heat of the holiday season Aussie-style. This colourful bottle may not look like the White Christmas you’ve been dreaming of, but you wait until you open the bottle.
Before she died, distiller Cameron MacKenzie’s mother Wilma would make the Christmas pudding on the same day every year. Now on that day Cam distils homemade Christmas puddings – made to his mum’s recipe – with juniper, cinnamon, star anise, coriander seed and angelica. This is then mixed with gin that has been aged in old Rutherglen Muscat barrels, and topped off with a dash of Muscat that has been aged in barrels that previously held Barossa Valley Pedro Ximénez. The result smells like gin, but tastes like Christmas, offering up raisins, mixed peel, sweet wine, mulling spices and old oak in the fireplace. Mix Christmas Gin 2018 into a festive Gin Sour, a Christmas Cobbler or a very merry Martinez.
Four Pillars is a small Australian distiller who create awe-inspiring gins in a copper still called Wilma. A no expense spared approach – Wilma was handmade by Germany’s oldest maker who only produce 25 stills per year – and immense attention to detail ensures a top quality product. For example it took them 18 months to decide on the ten base botanicals for their standard gin, they triple filter their Yarra Valley water, gins are produced in batches of just 460 bottles and they use whole oranges in the distilling process – quite an unusual and costly approach.
