3 Amazing Four Pillars Gin cocktails for Valentine's Day
Valentine's Day is upon us!
The perfect occasion to celebrate friends, family and loved ones and what better way to do that, than with the perfect Gin cocktail.
However you're planning to celebrate this special day, these 3 Four Pillars Gin cocktails are bound to make your day better......and bound to impress your significant others!
Four Pillars Gin, a truly Australian Gin.
The Rare Dry Gin by Four Pillars is still our favourite here at TGT HQ. Using a distinctive blend of botanicals, a one-of-a-kind world class copper still, a brand, a name and a bottle to die for. Not to mention ultimate dedication and hard work. It's simply very hard to beat! Four Pillars uses whole oranges which is quite unusual but Australian citrus is highly aromatic and supports the spicier botanicals like cardamom. The cinnamon and star anise add rich fruitcake tones, the Tasmanian pepperberry leaf provides warmth rather than heat, and the lemon myrtle is a beautiful alternative to lemon peel. The Rare Dry Gin has been awarded Gold medals at numerous prestigious international competitions....we've lost count!
Create your very best G&T with this stunner of a bottle or why not try out your mixing skills with one of the below recipes....
