When we started making test batches of gin back in 2012 we never in our maddest, wildest dreams thought this kind of international accolade could come so quickly. And the fact that this award is not for a single one of our gins but for the whole of our gin business and for what we’ve done to bring modern Australian craft, creativity, and great fun to the global gin category, makes it so incredibly special.
But it gets better... The previous two winners of this award are Hernö from Sweden in 2017 and Kyoto Distillery in Japan last year, so we couldn’t be in better company. They are two of the greatest distilleries and two of our best mates in the world of gin.
The award for International Gin Producer of the Year caps off a pretty epic 2019 for Four Pillars Gin, with top medals for our gins across the range, and becoming the first ever local distillery to be
awarded Liquor Brand of the Year at the Australian Liquor Industry Awards.
But these awards are more than just shiny trophies. They are really a tribute to every single person who has helped us make, sell, mix, or drink one of our gins over the past six years.
So while Cam is still celebrating in London, to say thanks for your support we'd love to celebrate with YOU, now and all weekend!
Come down our little gin shed in Healesville for free tastings (usually $10).
Get ahead on your Christmas shopping and buy online, with free shipping on us using the code 'DRINK BETTER GIN'.
Or head to our MYER pop-up gin stores in Melbourne City, Chadstone and Sydney City for a free Rare Dry Gin Chocolate with every bottle of gin you purchase (while stocks last).
Thanks, cheers and have a bloody brilliant weekend all,
Cam, Stu & Matt
