About The Gin

A distilled essence of the Yarra Valley here from local artisan Gin producer, Four Pillars.

This is their classic Rare Dry Gin infused with locally grown premium Shiraz grapes. The fruit is kept as whole berries and macerated in the Gin before pressing and further blending.

The blood red colour and added flavour infusion make for a Gin of great impact.

It's flavoursome, with sweet berry flavours amongst the classic Four Pillars backdrop and looks amazing as it turns hot pink when blended with a good clean tonic or soda.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Our home is in the Yarra Valley, where our neighbours make some of the finest wines in the world. So in 2015 we combined our Rare Dry Gin with some of the best Shiraz grapes in Australia to create our Bloody Shiraz Gin for the first time.

And now each year we steep Yarra Valley Shiraz grapes in gin, and after eight weeks we press the fruit before blending with more Rare Dry Gin.

The 2018 release has great depth of colour and is much richer and more vibrant than 2017, carrying really beautiful purples and reds to bottle. Flavour-wise it’s showing dark fruit, red berry and spice. There is also plenty of that classic Yarra Shiraz white pepper. And of course a lovely ginny character carries those grape aromas, making it unmistakably gin. The palate is lovely and sweet, with long juniper and spice characters to finish.

The ABV is 37.8%, unlike Sloe Gin where the alcohol less than 30%. So it packs a punch and is ideal in a range of cocktails. The gin is unfiltered, so it will develop secondary fruit characters beyond two years, and is best consumed within two years of vintage.

ABV : 37.80%

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Aromatically the gin has fresh pine needles and incredible spice, and a clear peppery, dense raspberry character. The palate is lovely and sweet, with long juniper and spice characters to finish. This release is slightly lighter in colour than last year's, due to a cool vintage in the Yarra Valley with a moderate ripening period." - Four Pillars

Love it... and the flavour grows on you

I've loved this Gin for a whole, and even those who at first said they aniseed flavour was too strong, the overall flavour grows on them and they loved it by the end of the night.

Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin

The subtle notes introduced by the shiraz gives this an extra dimension. Some earthiness and white pepper marry in well with the botanicals of the gin. Beautiful flavours that linger inviting further investigation. Not one for tonic!! Maybe a splash of soda and a piece of blood orange.

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
