Four Pillars Dry Island Gin

, , ,

Four Pillars Dry Island Gin is part of the limited Four Pillars Distiller Series, bringing distillers together to share their visions, joining forces to create a unique product.

Our SWEDE-AUS collaboration. Together Jon Hillgren (Found and Master Distiller, Hernö Gin) and Cam (Founder and Distiller, Four Pillars Gin) created a one-off gin embodying the best of both our worlds, a Dry Island Gin. A tribute to our hot dry island continent and their country of thousands of islands.

They distilled with juniper, coriander, river mint, roasted wattleseed, strawberry gum, lemon myrtle, and fresh lemons, plus meadowsweet from Sweden. The result is bright and lifted with beautiful citrus notes and a lovely floral cut-grass character. The palate is weighty with a fresh pine forest character.

Clean and pure, in a classic London Dry style. Enjoy it in a dry Martini with a lemon twist, a G&T with a slice of lemon and a sprig of thyme, or a Golden Bijou.

Four Pillars Dry Island Gin is crafted by Four Pillars Distillery in collaboration with the award-winning Hernö Distillery in Sweden.

From the Four Pillars team –
We established Four Pillars with a focus on gin. But great gin doesn’t just make itself. We recognised that our real focus would need to be on the craft of distilling.

If we could elevate this area of expertise in Australia, and bring a modern Australian sensibility to the process, then maybe we could make a gin worth shouting about.

Two years later we have five different gins, multiple gold medals at international spirits competitions and now a brand new distillery operation and tasting bar.

But the story starts back in 2013 we embarked on a tour of the US West Coast, from Portland down to San Francisco, identifying distilling techniques and equipment we admired. What stood out above all to us was that all the gins we loved on our trip were made in a Carl still.

18 months later, Four Pillars Distillery took delivery of their custom-built still from Carl of Germany, and called her Wilma (after Cameron’s beautiful but explosively tempered late mother). And Wilma turned out to be amazing, drawing extraordinary botanical flavour from a combination of rare, native and traditional botanicals.

She delivers an unbelievable purity of spirit (the gin comes out of Wilma at 93.5% ABV) despite Four Pillar’s unique approach of distilling their benchmark Rare Dry Gin with fresh, juicy biodynamic and highly-aromatic oranges.

From Four Pillars Dry Island Gin to Rare Dry Gin to Barrel Aged Gin to Navy Strength Gin to Bloody Shiraz Gin to Christmas Gin to Orange Marmalade (made with the oranges that make the gin) everything Four Pillars do is designed to elevate the craft of distilling in Australia.
