Four Pillars Olive Leaf Gin 700mL

The genesis of this gin was back in in 2015 when we distilled a little drop called Cousin Vera’s Gin. Made with our friends at Santamanía in Madrid, this was our first foray into savoury, Mediterranean-inspired gin flavours. Cousin Vera’s Gin came and went pretty quickly, but remains a cult classic in the Four Pillars canon for those who crave that savoury style. From that moment on, we knew gin and olives would combine beautifully and a trip to the olive groves of northern Victoria confirmed it for us.

OLIVES, OLIVES, OLIVES

After visiting Cobram Estate during olive harvest in 2019 we realised olive oil could be a brilliant botanical alongside olive leaf. “The aroma, flavour and texture of fresh olive is stunning, and we did an entire year of trials before finalising the recipe for this gin. These trials landed us on our final mix of Olive Leaf Gin botanicals: a big base of juniper with a savoury overlay of coriander seed, rosemary and bay leaf from my backyard, olive leaf, olive oil, lemon myrtle, macadamia, orris root, and fresh lemon and grapefruit.” The new Four Pillars Olive Leaf Gin is inspired by the olives groves of Victoria in Australia.

The idea for the gin came in 2015 when Four Pillars created Cousin Vera’s Gin in partnership with Madrid-based distillery Santamanía. The expression was Four Pillars’ first move into “savoury, Mediterranean-inspired gin flavours”. Bottled at 43.8% ABV, the new gin is made with cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil and olive leaf from three olive varieties, which have been combined with seven Australian botanicals. “After visiting Cobram Estate during olive harvest in 2019 we realised olive oil could be a brilliant botanical alongside olive leaf,” said co-founder and distiller, Cam Mackenzie. “The aroma, flavour and texture of fresh olive is stunning, and we did a year of trials before finalising the recipe for this gin. “The botanicals include a big base of juniper with a savoury overlay of coriander seed, rosemary, olive leaf, extra virgin olive oil, bay leaf, lemon myrtle, macadamia, orris root, and fresh lemon and grapefruit. “We have used olive leaf and oil from the picual, hojiblanca and coratina varieties, all harvested at Cobram Estate, which we know is one of the greatest extra virgin olive oil producers in the world, and fellow Victorians.” The resulting liquid is described by Mackenzie as “savoury, textural, bright and perfect for any Martini”. It is also recommended served in a Spanish-style gin and tonic, garnished with rosemary and lemon. He said: “My favourite is a Gibson; 60ml gin, 10ml dry vermouth and 10ml dry Sherry, stirred down into a super cold glass with a couple of cocktail onions for a garnish.”

Four Pillars Olive Leaf Gin Serving Suggestion The result is a gin that is savoury, textural, bright and perfect for any Martini. But make sure to try it in a Gibson, Cam’s favourite.
