Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin 70cl 37.8% ABV
Bloody Shiraz Gin is what.
The resultant gin is an incredibly rich, deep purple colour, which turns iridescent pink when mixed with tonic or soda.
Aromatically it has fresh pine needles, citrus and spice, and a clear peppery, dense raspberry character. The palate is lovely and sweet with a long juniper and spice character on the finish.
Unlike Sloe Gin (which is less than 30% ABV), the alcohol is 37.8% so it packs a punch and is ideal in a range of cocktails, or just straight on the rocks in all its pure purple glory, just with a slice of orange. Or in a fabulously colourful G&T!
Best consumed within two years of vintage. The gin is unfiltered and may start to develop drier fruit characters beyond two years.
