The Bloody Shiraz Gin is a combination of the Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin with some of the best Shiraz grapes in Australia. Yarra Valley Shiraz grapes were steeped in gin for eight weeks.
The fruit was de-stemmed but kept mainly as whole berries, and the tanks were kept cold and stirred daily. After eight weeks the fruit was pressed before blending with more Rare Dry Gin.
The resultant gin is an incredibly rich, deep purple colour, which turns iridescent pink when mixed with tonic or soda. Unlike Sloe Gin, the alcohol is 37.8% (rather than <30%) so it packs a punch and is ideal in a range of cocktails.
Spirit Sub Type
