Country of origin: Australia Alcohol by Volume (ABV): 45% Bottle size: 700ml
Four Pillars worked with the QANTAS Rockpool mixology team to create the second release in their Bartender Series - an Asian-inspired Modern Australian gin with softness and spice, one that is truly a spirit of Australia. Red and green Szechuan give it a lovely warm mouthfeel (a tiny bit like Neil Perry's famous numbing duck dish from Spice Temple), while the macadamia nuts give it softness and an almost creamy palate. The fresh Rose Glow apples, fresh tangelos, fresh grapefruit peel and dry native quandong add fruit and lift. Rockpool's bartenders were aiming for a gin with nice spicy complexity and mixability _ something to create a great G&T, or classic dry martini. Plus, with all that spice it also makes a spot-on Red Snapper, so next time you feel like a better Bloody Mary try one with Four Pillars Modern Australian Gin instead.

Four Pillars Distillery: 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. 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, we took delivery of our own custom-built still from Carl of Germany, and we 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 our unique approach of distilling our benchmark Rare Dry Gin with fresh, juicy biodynamic and highly-aromatic oranges. And she has now been joined by her larger sister Jude, and significantly smaller sister Eileen - both also made by Carl.
We hope you agree we’re on the right path. The judges at a number of prestigious international competitions must think so, as we've been awarded a Double Gold, Gold or Master status for all our mainstay gins in the past two years.
