If you can’t choose between wine and gin, we have the perfect solution – Shiraz gin.
Yes, this is a mix of red wine and our favourite spirit.
Four Pillars Gin is made in Australia and it could be perfect for everyone who struggles to make up their mind.
Apparently the distillers steep the grapes in the gin for eight weeks, then press them and blend them with more gin.
They say it creates notes of pine forest, white pepper and spices.
Their website says: ‘2019 was a terrific season for Victorian cool climate Shiraz. And that has given us another belter of a Bloody Shiraz Gin vintage.
‘After a good spring rain, summer brought serious heat resulting in more dominant dark fruit notes than 2018 – tons of delicious plum and blackberry.
‘The gin is beautifully balanced with a delicious sweetness and nice tannins to finish.’
It’s a bit like a Sloe Gin but has a stronger alcohol content at 37.8%.
The gin is also unfiltered so will continue to develop in flavour, like wine does.
The makers add: ‘Drink it young and fresh with red berry and spice characters, or enjoy it as it develops.’
It can be bought in 750ml bottles in the UK from a number of suppliers, including Master of Malt for £40.19 or Simple Wines Direct for £36.99.
According to Master of Malt, it has a hint of Christmas-y spices so it sounds like the perfect tipple as we head into the colder months.
Of course, we’ve already had lots of white wine and gin mix-ups and earlier this year, Echo Falls launched a rosé gin fusion.
