To make this special annual release Cam distills Christmas puddings, then ages this gin for a year in 100-year-old Muscat barrels. The gin has aromatics of classic juniper and a hint of cinnamon, backed up with a rich palate and a hint of sweetness from the Muscat. Sip it neat, mix it with ginger ale or beer, or try it in some great cocktails.
This gin is Cam’s tribute to four things he loves: Australia, Christmas, gin and his late mum, Wilma. Each year Wilma would make her puds on Victoria Derby Day, while the rest of the family listened to the races.
So now each year the Four Pillars family makes puddings to this recipe, which Cam distills then ages in Muscat barrels for a year before adding a slight tweak of Muscat at blending. It smells like gin and tastes like Christmas, and we release it each year on Derby Day.
