Four Pillars has released the latest vintage of its popular Bloody Shiraz Gin, with the fruit for this ninth vintage coming from both the Yarra Valley and Faraday, near Bendigo.

The gin is still made using the same process that Four Pillars Co-Founder and Master Distiller Cameron Mackenzie used back in 2015, with high-proof Rare Dry Din and cool climate Victorian grape juice macerating drawing colour and flavour to leave citrus and dense raspberry notes with a spice character to finish.

Mackenzie describe this 2024 vintage as a bloody good one.

“What we thought was going to be a long, hot and dry summer turned into the exact opposite. It was mild, with cool nights and rain when we needed it. Some say it’s the best since 1992, so let’s go with that,” he said.

This year’s limited-edition Bloody Shiraz bottle features an etched tablescape design from Melbourne artist and gin hospitality friend, Kris Leombruni. It showcases a busy table overflowing with food, drinks and fun.

The 2024 Four Pillars Shiraz will be available from May 29, and anyone who buys bottle between 29 May and 30 June will go into the draw to win a $250 voucher every day, that can be used in any bar or restaurant of their choosing.
