About The Gin

Nothing says Christmas day in Australia quite like the Four Pillars Christmas Gin.

This small-run Gin is made with a traditional base of juniper, coriander, angelica, star anise, and cinnamon but souped up with a yule-tide twist.

Head distiller, Cam, distills actual Christmas puddings made from his mother's recipe as a key component of this release. This year there is also a portion which is aged in old Rutherglen Muscat casks and even some actual Muscat included in the final blend.

It's rich and toasty, as Four Pillars say, "More than ever, it smells like gin and tastes like Christmas."

From The Producer

To make this gin Cam first distills some Christmas puddings (made to his mother Wilma's 1968 recipe) with juniper, cinnamon, star anise, coriander and angelica over the top.

Cam also ages gin in a couple of 125-year-old ex-William Grant scotch whisky barrels that had previously stored Rutherglen Muscat for 80 years. He then blends this with the Christmas Pudding gin, and to finish he adds a slight tweak of Rutherglen Classic Muscat to round out the palate. Cam also adds a touch of our own muscat that has been sitting in barrels which previously aged Pedro Ximenez. So we get even more depth, richness and complexity.

This year we have the Melbourne artist Stephen Baker's artwork 'Basking in the Sun' adorning our label, channelling all that is great about a hot Aussie Christmas. More than ever, it smells like gin and tastes like Christmas.
