The Schtick: Ginvitational Day 18! Produced with an additional ingredient – limes – this gin from Four Pillars is bottled at an elevated proof. Today’s Four Pillars gin review is from the 2019 release and it is bottled at 58.8% ABV. They have an interesting set of production methods for their gin, as well as the origination from Australia, so this should be an interesting one. Let’s get to it.

Review #1628 | Gin Review #45

Distiller: Four Pillars

Bottler: Four Pillars

Brand: Four Pillars

Selection: N/A

ABV: 55.8% ABV

Age: NA


Nose: Really bright and fragrant – tons of juniper, lemon peel, faint anise, sweet lime zest.

Taste: Sweet and rich on the palate. Really supple mouth feel, coats the palate really nicely. First there is some malt and a roasted corn note that quickly gives way to pepper, sourdough bread, sweet cream and icing and some coriander. Really really nice.

Finish: Long but searing and hot. The complexity of the palate is almost lost on how hot the finish is firing off, though there is a lovely balance of pepper and lemon curd.

Overall: The nose and palate are delightful, but there is some lost momentum in the finish.

Thanks for reading!
