Four Pillars Christmas Gin - It’s beginning to look (and taste) a lot like christmas at The Heritage Wine Bar with inclusion of Four Pillars Christmas Gin limited release.
If you are a fan of Christmas pudding, cinnamon and muscat flavours delivered in a perfectly balanced clear spirit, then this is definitely for you.
To make this gin, Cam from Four Pillars 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. This year Cam also added 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.
The result is a gin that smells like it should but tastes like Christmas. Sip it neat (it’s dangerously drinkable) or over ice with a wedge of orange. It’s also fantastic in a martinez, a traditional flip or an old fashioned. We are also loving the Christmas Beetle on the label. Just gorgeous.
