Four Pillars Modern Australian
Price per litre:
An Asian-inspired gin with native botanicals, our Modern Australian Gin is bright and dry – a modern classic gin. Red and green Szechuan give it a lovely warm mouthfeel, while the macadamia nuts add softness and an almost creamy palate. The fresh apples, ginger and grapefruit peel, along with dry native quandong, give the gin fruit and lift.

This gin was originally an exclusive collaboration between Four Pillars Gin, QANTAS and the Rockpool Group.
Alongside some great native botanicals, Asian spices like Szechuan peppercorns gave it a lovely warm mouthfeel (a tiny bit like Neil Perry’s famous numbing duck dish from Spice Temple). Combined with local fruits and Australian macadamia nuts this gave us a gin with lots of softness and spice.
And then something not entirely unexpected happened. Everyone wanted in on this ‘secret’ gin they had seen in fancy restaurants and airport lounges.
We think of it as a modern Australian classic, strongly led on the nose and palate by lashings of juniper.
This traditional underpinning is supported by native lemon myrtle, quandong, macadamia nuts, fresh grapefruit peel, red and green Szechuan (because what would modern Australia be without Chinese flavours?) and fresh red apples.
The result is a bright and dry gin, made in a truly Australian way, and now available for everyone to share.
