Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin is the brain child of Four Pillar’s Master Distiller. He figured since Four Pilllars is based in the wine growing region of the Yarra Valley – why not combine Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin with some of the best shiraz grapes in Australia? Just before Easter 2016, Four Pillars sourced some beautiful Yarra Valley Shiraz grapes and then steeped them in high proof Rare Dry Gin for a couple of months.
The fruit was de-stemmed but kept mainly as whole berries, and the tanks were kept cold and stirred daily. After eight weeks the team at Four Pillars pressed the fruit before blending with more Rare Dry Gin. The resulting gin is an incredibly rich, deep purple colour, which turns iridescent pink when mixed with tonic or soda.
