Victorian boutique distillery Four Pillars has just released a new Sherry cask gin that\u2019s also the first new product to join its line-up since 2016.\r\n\r\nFour Pillars\u2019 Sherry cask solera comprises of 42 casks, some from Spain and some from one of the distiller\u2019s mates who makes Australian Apera or \u201cAustralian sherry.\u201d\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe sherry casks are much older than Four Pillar\u2019s traditional Chardonnay barrels, varying in age from 15 to 35 years old. These barrels were first filled over a year ago, and this first solera release is taken only from the bottom row of barrels.\r\n\r\nSlightly deeper in colour, Sherry Cask is a vibrant, intense and layered barrel-aged gin. A pine needle quality underpins its amazing complexity. The residual Sherry and Apera notes have integrated beautifully with the deeper cassia and star anise flavours - think dried fruits and nuts. The addition of some Spanish Amontillado Sherry added length and sweetness to the final gin.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nFour Pillars Sherry Cask Gin is available now for RRP $80 per bottle. Sip it neat over ice or try it in a Tuxedo, outlined below for your drinking pleasure and courtesy of Four Pillars.\r\n\r\nIngredients\r\n\u2022 60mL Sherry Cask Gin\r\n\u2022 20mL Dry Spanish Sherry\r\n\u2022 3 good dashes of Regans orange bitters\r\n\r\nMethod\r\n\u2022 Add all ingredients to a stirring glass with ice, stir and strain into a coupette.\r\n\u2022 Garnish with a lemon twist.\r\n\u2022 Enjoy!\r\n\r\nIn related gin news, Crafter\u2019s unabashedly admits that it uses alchemy principles in the distillation of its Aromatic Flower Gin.
