Back By Popular Demand! Four Pillars Reinvents Its Sticky Carpet Gin

Drink, Sydney / 19 March 2024

Calling all pub lovers! Your favourite spirit – Four Pillars’ Sticky Carpet Gin – is back with a fresh twist.

Remember those nights at your favourite local – the air thick with laughter and conversation, the worn carpet a silent witness to countless stories? Four Pillars’ Sticky Carpet Gin, a unique spirit that captures the very essence of these cherished pub experiences, is back for another round.

First released in 2019 as a homage to Australia’s iconic pub front bars, Sticky Carpet Gin quickly became a favourite among gin enthusiasts. Inspired by the warmth and camaraderie fostered within these local institutions, the gin offered a taste of nostalgia in every sip. Now, after a brief hiatus, Sticky Carpet Gin returns, sporting a refreshed recipe from Four Pillars’ masterful distiller, Cameron Mackenzie.

For this reimagining, Mackenzie has opted for a lighter touch. While retaining the spirit of the original, the new iteration swaps out the roasted dark stout for a more aromatic Little Creatures Pale Ale. This change promises a subtler yet captivating flavour profile, with hints of citrus and tropical notes complementing the familiar resin-forward juniper and deep brown spice notes.

“The Little Creatures brewers have made a beer that is the benchmark for American-style pale ale,” explains Mackenzie, “with slightly tropical and resin-y flavours.” He describes the new Sticky Carpet Gin as a “dense canvas of resin-y juniper with deep brown spice notes,” balanced by a “chewy, malty hop character” and “bright citrus notes.”

This innovative spirit is sure to tantalise the taste buds of both longtime fans of the original Sticky Carpet Gin and those seeking a unique Australian gin experience. The news is particularly exciting for those who cherish the atmosphere of their local pub.
