Tasting Notes

We've been waiting almost a year for the third pillar of the Four Pillars empire and now it's finally here! Using the same citrus-dominated recipe as the incredible Rare Dry, that gin is transferred into a solera of nine French oak chardonnay barrels, each with its own unique flavor. The solera is tasted every six months by head distiller Cameron Mackenzie who blends a portion to his liking, creating a new expression for each batch. The vanilla tones are light adding hints of cinnamon and baking spice to the citrus. You can sip it neat like a whisky, but it still mixes a fantastic gin and tonic. Try it as a whisky replacement in a Manhattan or as a Cognac replacement in a Sidecar. Any way you drink it, it's pretty darn delicious.

    I will admit that despite my trust in Four Pillars to make excellent gin I was a little skeptical to try the Barrel Aged version. This is mostly due to the fact that I have never really enjoyed barrel aged gin, it just does not hit my sweet spot for what I am looking for in gin. Of course I am always happy to change my mind, and while I still do not love barrel aging gin, I really liked the Four Pillars version. The barrels add lots of complex fruit and citrus notes on the nose. While there is some vanilla here, it thankfully does not dominate. Instead layers of interesting savory spices mix with an almost Meyer lemon citrus with a long finish bolstered with some oak spice. I cannot wait to try it in cocktails, although it is good enough to sip which is something I never thought I would say about gin.

    This gin is elegant, soft and easy. It has aromas of juniper with a hint of lime and some savory notes. In the mouth it is nice and pretty, with a tasty complex mix of spice and lime. There is a long finish. It is delicious and a little different.

    The Barrel aged Gin from Four pillars is a botanical bonanza . The nose is super floral with some orange peel , Baked apple and pear with citrus and botanical flavors, lightly oaked . This is beautiful gin. Pairs well with fever tree tonic water.
