The Four Pillars Christmas Gin is a special limited release. To make this special annual release, Cam first distills Christmas puddings (made to his mother Wilma's 1968 recipe), then ages this gin for a year in Muscat barrels that are over 100 years old.
Cam adds a slight tweak of Classic Muscat at bottling, Classic Rutherglen matured at the distillery in old puncheons that used to hold Pedro Ximenez in the Barossa Valley. This rounds out the palate and adds a touch of richness. You'll get aromatics of classic juniper and a hint of cinnamon, backed up with a rich, luscious palate with a hint of sweetness from the Muscat and richness from the extended barrel ageing.
More than ever, it smells like gin and tastes like Christmas. Sip it neat (it’s dangerously drinkable, so one 700mL bottle may not go far on Christmas Day), mix it with ginger ale or beer, or try it in some great cocktails like this Christmas Punch.
