Meet Gilded Chaos Gin
Kindred spirits, quirky confidantes. QT Hotels and Four Pillars share a love of causing a stir. Causing a commotion everywhere we go. Adding a little colour to everything we touch. And once again our worlds have collided in the form of bottled gold.
Led by Four Pillars’ co-founder and World Gin Icon Awards 2023’s Master Distiller of the Year, Cameron Mackenzie. It’s then been blended beautifully alongside Four Pillars signature botanicals by QT Hotels & Resorts’ best bartenders.
One step over the line of orderly, we’ve entered our golden era of disruption. A bit unruly even, breaking all the flavour standards. Rooted in wildness and refined for modern Australian taste, wild fennel, sage and vetiver add intrigue to Four Pillars’ signature botanical base. Down to earth, yet downright indulgent. Equal parts grounded and gilded.
Get to know Gilded Chaos with Cameron. From the nuances of flavour, it’s purity and balance, this gin is nothing short of extraordinary.
Take a sip and let the chaos commence…
Launching with this gin are three luxe libations for expert imbibers, exclusive to QT restaurants and bars.
The Gilded Chaos Luxe Martini
A freezer-door martini designed for the drinker to make their drink completely theirs with a trio of garnish options. The martini evolves throughout the ritual, each garnish will provide a new drinking dimension to the flavours and structure of the Gilded Chaos Gin.
The Gilded Gibson
Incorporating modern techniques with old fashioned style. Cocchi Vermouth di Torino Dry, with its intricate blend of herbs and spices, adds a deep sweetness to heighten the macadamia, hinoki wood and vetiver in Gilded Chaos. To add an extra layer of aromatic charm, kaffir lime leaf is nitro-flashed with cocktail onion brine to bring a brightness in the savoury notes of the onion itself. And that is the Gilded Gibson.
Exclusive to QT venues in Australia.
The Gilded Elixir
A twist on the classic Martinez, a cocktail popular during the Gilded Age. The Gilded Elixir incorporates the tart sweetness from maraschino liqueur and sharp tang of verjus. Perched atop this cocktail is a caramelised lemon wheel, which is to be dissolved into the drink at the discretion of the drinker, adding the desired touch of extra citrus and sweetness.
Exclusive to QT venues in New Zealand.
