WORLD’S LEADING GIN PRODUCER
It all started back in 2013 with three mates and one extraordinary copper still. We called her Wilma (after Cameron’s beautiful late mother), and she has since been joined by Jude, Eileen, Beth and Coral. Six years later, in 2019, Four Pillars Gin was named the world’s leading gin producer by the IWSC in London. We won again in 2020, making Australia’s favourite gin officially the world’s best.
LOCAL NATIVE BOTANICALS
We are lucky enough to have access to local native botanicals like lemon myrtle and Tassie pepper. And our signature is the use of whole fresh citrus in every gin.
- Lemon Myrtle
The process of making great gin is an art, to maximise both purity of spirit and concentration of flavour.
The distillation begins as the water bath is heated around the pot containing the base spirit and botanicals.
Once the pot is boiling, vapours begin to rise and head up out of the top of the pot, through the botanical basket, steaming the oranges and releasing the flavours of the fruit. For the next seven hours the liquid will condense and re-condense as it passes from the pot, to the basket and then through seven separate plates on our column still.
