Four Pillars Navy Strength Gin
Made very similarly to the Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin, but with less fresh oranges. The orange quoata is replaced with intense native finger limes, harvested on the NSW North Coast near Byron Bay. These explosive little limes are only the size of a finger but they pack a huge flavour punch. They add a superb citrus edge to the Navy Strength Gin. To enhance the spice, some fresh ginger and turmeric is added, balancing the intensity of the other botanicals. This award-winning Four Pillars Navy Strength Gin has an ABV of 58.8% alcohol by volume.
Four Pillars Navy Strength Gin’s Southside Cocktail:
45ml Four Pillars Navy Strength Gin
30ml lime juice
15ml sugar syrup
8 mint leaves
This is really simple but big on flavour, simply combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, reserving one mint leaf to garnish. Shake vigorously, and strain into a chilled glass (we like a champagne saucer for this one). Garnish with a bruised mint leaf (bruised to release the oils).
