Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin 2018
From Four Pillars:
We'd be crazy not to utilize the incredible calibre of cool climate fruit available to us in the Yarra Valley. So around Easter time in 2015, we steeped our first Yarra Valley Shiraz grapes in high proof Rare Dry Gin for eight weeks.
The fruit was de-stemmed but kept mainly as whole berries, and the tanks were kept cold and stirred daily. After eight weeks we pressed the fruit before blending with more Rare Dry Gin.
The resulting gin was a little bit of a success, so in 2018 we're now onto our third 'official' vintage release after that bootleg version...
