Rare Dry GinPlease wait Please wait
Hailing from Australia’s Yarra Valley, this is a classic-yet-modern dry gin with warming spice balanced by vibrant citrus notes. Made with whole, aromatic Australian oranges, Tasmanian pepperberry leaf, lemon myrtle, cardamom and more, Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin is a delicious, multi-award-winning spirit that’s a must-try for gin lovers.
From The Whisky Exchange
- Warming spice up front, a blend of classic baking spices with flashes of exotic pepper. The counterpoint to this is intensely fresh and juicy orange – the aroma when you remove the first strip of peel – underpinned by layers of more subtle lemon. All this sits on a solid juniper background, creating an enjoyably accessible yet modern gin experience. Cracking with tonic and a citrus peel garnish.
About Four Pillars
The Four Pillars story begins in 2013, when the founders toured the US West Coast to examine different distillation techniques. Eighteen months later they took delivery of a Carl still, named Wilma after one of the founders’ late mother, and commenced distilling what would quickly turn out to be award-winning gins. Their four pillars, from which the name is derived, are: stills, water, botanicals and love.

The smoothest and most refreshing gin I have tr?ed.
If I had only one gin to choose from, it would be this.
Incredible - amazing by itself or in a G&T.
Sensational, aromatic, citrus-forward deliciously drinkable gin. Makes a wicked ly moreish G&T with fresh orange.
