Teaming up with Victorian distillery Four Pillars, QT Hotels has created a bespoke and limited-edition artisanal gin.
This marks the hotel’s second iteration of chaos gin, crafted by Four Pillars’ co-founder and World Gin Icon Awards 2023’s Master Distiller of the Year, Cameron Mackenzie.
The gin has then been blended alongside Four Pillars signature botanicals by Chris Morrison, Director of Beverage QT, as well as QT’s best bartenders.
“A couple of trials and taste tests with sage, vetiver and wild fennel led us to our new Gilded Chaos Gin, a fantastic blend that hits all the right notes. It was a true collaboration with the team at QT and we’re really proud to get this gin out into the world and into your Martini glass,” says Cameron Mackenzie, Four Pillars co-founder.
Launching with Gilded Chaos Gin are two cocktails designed to evoke a sense of the Gilded Age. The Gilded Chaos Luxe Martini is a freezer-door martini designed so that the drinker can make their martini completely theirs with a trio of garnish options including lemon peel, extra virgin olive oil and pastis; while the Gilded Gibson incorporates modern techniques with an old fashioned style.
The limited-edition gin is now pouring at QT’s bars and restaurants throughout Australia and New Zealand, including QT Sydney, QT Melbourne, QT Canberra, QT Newcastle, QT Gold Coast, QT Perth, QT Auckland, QT Wellington and QT Queenstown.
