Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz, 70 cl - Award Winning Premium Australian Gin - With Signature Botanicals and Local Shiraz Grapes
About this deal
Bloody Bandwagon is based on Four Pillars’ Bloody Shiraz Gin. The original was created when Four Pillars came into a 250-kilogram load of Shiraz grapes from the Yarra Valley. The experiment paid off, with Bloody Shiraz Gin now considered a cult favourite. Like Bloody Shiraz Gin, Bloody Bandwagon perfectly balances sweet fruit and all the gin flavours. Four Pillars began by working on alcohol-free versions of their two most popular products, Rare Dry Gin and Bloody Shiraz Gin, crafting, testing and tasting to create the best non-alcoholic gin possible. The team consider the finished products, Bandwagon Dry and Bloody Bandwagon to be their best shot at Australia’s best-tasting non-alcoholic gin . As Aussies, we obviously have taken something British and tried to improve upon it - we have plenty of great shiraz grapes and we make some of the best gin in the world, so it seemed a pretty bloody good idea to combine the two and see if the end result could be greater than the sum of the parts!"
I was a huge fan of Four Pillars before I went alcohol-free, so I was very excited to try the Four Pillars non-alcoholic gin range and I’m even more excited to introduce Bandwagon Dry and Bloody Bandwagon to you. I’ve created this guide to help you learn more about Four Pillars Bandwagon and their two non-alcoholic gins . The making of Four Pillars non-alcoholic ginAlthough Bandwagon Dry is made with exactly the same botanicals as Rare Dry Gin (including juniper, oranges, lemon myrtle and pepperberry), each one is distilled separately so the flavour and quality can be controlled before they’re mixed together. Pomegranate juice - if you don't have this, try replacing it with an equal amount of cranberry juice. The key ingredient in Bloody Shiraz Gin is fermented Shiraz grapes, which contain alcohol, so Four Pillars had to find a different way to inject the Shiraz flavour and colour. They did this by using pressed Shiraz grape juice, made from cool-climate Victorian Shiraz grapes. The result is a convincing alcohol-free version of the cult favourite. Bandwagon Dry
This non-alcoholic gin has a complex flavour profile featuring Shiraz notes along with botanicals such as Tasmanian pepperberry leaf and aromatic citrus. Bloody Bandwagon has some subtly sweet notes and you’ll notice a little heat on the finish.

Launching in 200+ Waitrose stores for September 2020, Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin is described by the distillery as an 'experiment-gone-right.' Bandwagon Dry has been modelled on Four Pillars’ original, Rare Dry Gin, which has become something of a benchmark for modern, citrus-forward gins with a combination of Middle Eastern, Asian and local Australian botanicals. Bandwagon Dry follows the same path but without alcohol. Some non-alcoholic spirits fall short in terms of heat and mouthfeel, elements that are difficult to create without the use of alcohol. Four Pillars have used some clever ingredients to overcome this challenge.
Olive Leaf Gin
It was a gin drink that defied easy description or categorisation. A bit amaro-like but not really amaro-like, a bit like a Barolo Chinato but different. It was truly unique. If you’re entertaining, this Day Spa punch will impress your guests. Mix a full bottle of Bandwagon Dry with 700ml cold mineral spring water (chilled filtered tap water works well too) and 250ml elderflower cordial in a carafe or jug. Stir in 2 lemons sliced into wheels along with a whole sleeve of mint. It’s as refreshing as a trip to the day spa! Bloody Bandwagon
