Four Pillars have turned Christmas pudding into gin!

‘Twas the months before Christmas, and in a small Australian distillery in Victoria, something was was stirring – a gin with a touch of the magic of Christmas was being brewed! If you’re less about Christmas spirit and more about Christmas spirits, you’ll want to get your hands on Four Pillars’ festival special – they’ve bottled Christmas pudding and turned it into gin! Yep, if you want an excuse to get tipsy on Christmas Day, this is definitely it – and it’s dangerously drinkable. Using real Christmas pudding no less, with the addition of a little juniper, cinnamon, star anise, coriander and angelica, Four Pillars have just about bottled the essence of Christmas itself – only this version will help you get through the lengthy family lunch way better. The spirit is already sold out on the Four Pillars website, but you might still be able to get it at a few lucky retailers – check online for stockists. If not, the distillery plan on making another batch for next year, so keep an eye out! Here’s to a gintastic Christmas! Words by Ranyhyn Akui
