Chardonnay Cask Gin 500ml
This Chardonnay Cask Gin proved so popular that it has completely sold out at the distillery. Luckily, Harvey Nichols has secured a few bottles for you…
Four Pillars built a solera system, a series of barrels usually used for ageing Sherry but sometimes rum. Aged gin is bottled from the oldest barrels at the bottom of the solera, each row is then topped up from the row above and then new gin (made to the same recipe as the multiple-gold-medal-winning Rare Dry Gin) is fed in at the top to fill the gap. What makes Four Pillar’s solera system unique is that it was constructed from French oak barrels that used to hold Yarra Valley Chardonnay. This ageing process has accentuated the ginger and coriander notes and adding something that can only be described as bottled sunshine, while layering lemon peel, vanilla, cream, toffee and blossom on top. Fruity, spicy and floral, it’s a delight sipped neat over ice, or alternatively with tonic or mixed into a Gin Sour or a punchy martini.
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 created by Germany’s oldest maker who only create 25 stills per year – and an immense attention to detail ensures a top quality product. For example it took them 18 months to decide on the ten base botanicals, 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 approach.
