The Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin is an exceptionally rare variety. Oranges are used in the distillation process.
Furthermore, by utilizing some native ingredients, Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin solidifies its claim to being uniquely Australian. A warming and spicy element is provided by Tasmanian Pepperberry, which is also found in Botanic Australis and Never Never's Southern Strength. Once more, lemon myrtle is used in place of the more common lemon.
The remaining botanicals include some traditional ingredients for modern gins, such as cardamom and lavender. All are distilled using local grain spirits as a base and diluted with Yarra Valley water from the area.
With a hint of "Asian cuisine," the aroma was tantalizing. Pink peppercorns, Mineola orange, and sweet Vietnamese cinnamon are mixed together. It's gentle and light, juniper. The other plants are the main attraction.
The mouthfeel of Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin is luxurious. It has an attractive texture when sipped on its own. With rich, luscious oranges and a soft baking spice flavor, early makrut lime peel is used. On the back and finish, the juniper is more pronounced.
