Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin to quench thirsts this summer; awaits DF return

By Luke Barras-hill |


The 2020 Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin will be released in July.

Australian craft distillery Four Pillars is looking forward to restarting trading in global DF&TR when the travel situation permits.

Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin is due to be released in early July.

Although a month later than intended, the delay has resulted in more stock for drinkers to enjoy before the next iteration of the product is unveiled in 2021.

The company says its Shiraz grapes have enjoyed a strong harvest despite the wild summer and autumn in Victoria, home to the distillery at Healesville.

The Yarra Valley and immediate surrounds were spared the smoke taint from the Australian bushfires and the region benefitted from high rainfall.

“2020 will go down as one of the strangest vintages on record,” said Distiller Cameron Mackenzie. “While half the country was on fire and experienced extreme heat, the Yarra was quite the opposite.”

Bloody Shiraz Gin’s roots can be traced to World Gin Day in 2015 when Shiraz berries where steeped with high-proof rare dry gin for eight weeks before being released in an unlabelled bottle. The liquid went on to sell out in a matter of days.

In 2016, Bloody Shiraz Gin gained its own label and a small amount was exported in 2017 to key markets in Asia, Europe and the US. It is Four Pillars’ second highest-selling product behind the original Rare Dry Gin.

Bloody Shiraz can be found across more than 20 markets globally with retailers and bars.
