Say hello to our newest gin in a tin
Back in October 2021, we decided to pay homage to the one often underappreciated Aussie invention – the humble ready-to-drink can. And we did so by taking our first born, Rare Dry Gin, mixing it with just the right amount of tonic and sealing it up in a can to the serve of one standard drink. Behold: Rare Dry Gin & Tonic Cans.
Well now it’s time to grow again. Because like they say, three’s a crowd but four’s a party! So without further delay, please give a warm welcome to Navy Strength Gin & Ginger! Made with Navy Strength Gin and our own version of ginger beer created using fresh ginger and lime juice, this super fresh gin drink is tin-credible.
Over the next few months, you’ll spot our newest gin tin rolling out in good bottle shops across Australia. It’s going to take a little while because there are plenty of stores looking to fill up their fridges with Four Pillars, but we wanted to share the news here first. But what we absolutely promise is that you’ll be able to grab a four pack (or more!) before heading out to your birthday party/picnic/beach trip this summer.
Also, the cans aren’t available on our website because we know you’re gonna grab them on the move. But if you find yourself close to our Healesville Distillery or Surry Hills Laboratory, you can come and get ’em from the Gin Shop! Gin in a tin for the win.
THE FULL GIN TIN FAMILY
NAVY STRENGTH GIN & GINGER
Like our other gin tins, Cam distilled a special version of Navy Strength Gin, increasing the botanical load to include more of the good stuff like ginger, turmeric and finger limes. It adds some va va voom and also ensures we don’t lose any of that botanical flavour once the mixer is added. For the mixer, we created our own version of a ginger beer using fresh ginger and lime juice which, when combined with the Navy Strength Gin, creates a super fresh gin drink with a hit of ginger spice and bright citrus.
FRESH YUZU GIN & SODA
Fresh Yuzu Gin & Soda happens to be our first ready-to-drink can using soda rather than tonic as the mixer – which means it’s lower in calories but by no means skimping out on the flavour. The Highball-style drink is supercharged with yuzu flavour thanks to an incredibly concentrated Fresh Yuzu Gin base that is combined with clean and crisp carbonated water. Just like our original G&T can, the extra yuzu in the gin distillation means your drink is essentially already garnished, so all that’s left for you to do is crack it open and enjoy.
BLOODY SHIRAZ GIN & TONIC
Bloody Shiraz Gin is a naturally sweet and totally delicious purple liquid which is only made better by a good splash of tonic and big squeeze of lemon. So that’s exactly what we’ve put into our purple can. A hyper-concentrated Bloody Shiraz Gin mixed with bespoke tonic and a healthy dash of lemon to cut through that natural Shiraz sweetness. This pink drink is so flavour-packed it should probably come with a warning… so here’s the warning: you are gonna love this can a lot.
RARE DRY GIN & TONIC
Despite how easy they are to serve and drink, the perfect canned G&T is not as easy to make. You need to nail both the gin and the tonic, and their ratios, especially if you want a drink that is flavour-packed but still sits at one standard drink like we did. Low and behold, Cam nailed the brief, and our first Rare Dry Gin & Tonic can was created.
