This Australia-based gin named itself for its Four Pillars: their well-loved stills; their locally-sourced water; their global array of botanicals; and, finally, passion – both the founders’ and their fans. That’s because Four Pillars was created via crowd-funding – a participatory process that speaks to their inclusivity. They wanted to create a gin everyone could sip.
Four Pillars accomplishes this lofty goal thanks to the attunement of botanicals that includes Tasmanian pepper berry, lemon myrtle, and whole oranges, rather than just rinds, thus imparting the sip with a heavy dose of lively citrus. Peppery, piney, and fresh, there’s a tone to please every palate and preference.
Pairs Well With:
Considering Four Pillars’ complex flavor profile, we quite enjoy it in a complex cocktail, such as Negroni. And as for activities – the universality of its appeal lends itself nicely to an event that brings diverse people together. This can be a birthday, a book reading, or even just a random afternoon – just as long as there are people who wouldn’t otherwise meet.
