Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin - 2018 release

Recommended Posts

not available yet but it will be on june 1. the 2018 release of the four pillars bloody shiraz gin.

no spoilers, of course, but it is a cracker. for me, the first one back in 2015 was the best they have made. this is the closest to it in style, i think, and may even pip it. delicious. 

jump on the site www.fourpillarsgin.com.au on june 1 but remember, last year the release broke the internet with people trying to get one.

Can’t wait! I shall report back next week. Somehow I have a funny feeling that you may have started me down yet another bloody (gin) rabbit hole!

I bought a few bottles at the aforementioned KL site and drank a couple and gifted a few to friends. Only positive reports so far.

After reading Ken's post I found a bottle at my local purveyor. Not much of a gin fan but really enjoyed this version. Bloody shiraz, splash of tonic & a muddled Orange slice is delightful. Very refreshing & well worth $50 a bottle. Perfect pairing with a rosado wrapper aged R&J 4 this memorial day weekend.

This thread just keeps popping up to taunt me! Anybody know of a distributor in North Texas? I can't find it anywhere.

i'll ask the guys about distributors in the states. but it might be tough. the new one won't be there for some time as only released here tomorrow and i can't imagine too much of the old one floating around.

Thanks Ken. 

I know K&L still has it in California and some distributors in New York. Unfortunately, the US has pretty strict laws forbidding interstate sale and shipment of distilled liquor. Blah blah blah.

I received my bottle of Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin today, delivered to work one day before the launch - from Dans. Happy days!

Just cracked open my bottle. It's fairly good stuff and very refreshing over ice. If you bought regular Bombay Sapphire or Tanqueray and mixed in a bit of blood orange, creme de cassis, and orange peel, you'd pretty much get the same thing IMO. It's nothing overly complex, but tasty for sure.

finally got a note from them - 

 

Nowhere in Texas but widely available in NY and CA – good delivery options out of Astor Wine and Spirits in NY and K&L wines and spirits in CA. There are some strange rules about shipping spirits but will leave with him to sort out

I finally popped over to K&L to pick up a bottle of Bloody Shiraz. That shelf still looks the same—plenty of bottles left.

Yea I can't say Gin is that popular here in the US. Over in the UK and Spain, it's a whole other story lol.
