Four Pillars Launches Navy Strength Gin
Melbourne's Four Pillars Gin has made a huge impact in the craftsman spirits industry and recently swept all before it winning a prestigious double gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition just six months after its launch. Now Four Pillars is launching its "gunpowder proof" Four Pillars Navy Strength Gin. The World Loves Melbourne was invited to experience this fine gin with Cam McKenzie from Four Pillars, Fiona Lim from Wine Republic, and Dan Roche from Vanguard Luxury Brands. Bartender for the evening was the award winning Fred Siggins of Black Pearl.
Fred Siggins is a Melbourne bartender rock star and his amazing pink peppercorn and honey 'Four Sheets to the Wind' cocktail was a huge hit on the night.
Four Pillars Navy Strength Gin is top notch and doesn't hold back fire. After experimenting with some exclusive batches for the Gin Palace, Four Pillars decided to add fresh Byron Bay finger limes to the distillation, along with beautiful organic oranges. This means they undertake a frenzy of distilling when these beauties are in season, and release just one edition of the Navy Strength each year.
The finger limes highlight the Asian spices like coriander and star anise, and are complemented by the addition of fresh ginger. Finally, fresh turmeric adds a fresh but earthy quality.
The resulting gin has lifted aromatics of lime curd, pine needles, and fragrant spices with a vanilla character which pulls the spices together. The palate is intense - sweet and juicy - but it is still very clean. The turmeric has added weight and earthiness to the palate with a freshness not unlike dill or cucumber.

Four Pillars is a small distillery in the Yarra Valley, proudly established in 2013, and their ambition is to make the best craft spirits in Australia.
