Four Pillars gin from Victoria are very excited to announce the release of Bloody Shiraz Gin #Vintage2017!
We know you all fell in love with this purple phenomenon last year. So you know that Bloody Shiraz Gin is the product of the awesome magic that happens when you combine Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin with cool-climate, Yarra Valley Shiraz grapes, some of the best in Australia.
And the beauty of Bloody Shiraz Gin being a product of vintage means that it will never be the same. The 2017 Vintage this year was cooler, giving a moderate but slightly longer ripening time. That means you’ll see a more vibrant ruby colour, with true Yarra Valley shiraz characters – earthiness, complexity and subtle white pepper spice. But still with that balanced sweetness of the previous releases.
Unlike Sloe Gin, the alcohol is 37.8% (rather than <30%) so it packs a punch and is ideal in a range of cocktails. The gin is unfiltered, so it will develop secondary fruit characters beyond two years and is best consumed within two years of vintage.
