Four Pillars Chardonnay Barrel Gin 500ml (Victoria)
The botanical oils have developed and changed dramatically, whilst still remaining distinctively gin. The juniper base has become more textured, while the spices show developed intensity and fragrance.
As with previous releases the preserved ginger character (thanks to the cardamom) is amazing and sits nicely with crushed coriander and preserved citrus notes. The oak continues to contribute to colour and sweetness, weight and texture. The finish is lovely and dry.
This is a balanced, super sippable drink. Enjoy it neat or on the rocks – it’s delicious over one large ice cube with a drop of honey and a small sprig of rosemary
