Beloved local spirits producer Four Pillars is known for innovation. Its inventive collaborations and tasty creations like the rare dry and bloody shiraz gin ranges have earned it the title of World's Best Gin for two years running now. The distillery is now looking to elevate your sunny days with an esky in hand with a new range of ready-to-drink gin and tonic cans.

In an effort to take the RTD game to the next level, Four Pillars is squeezing all the goodness of its rare dry gin into a convenient can. The RTD is made using a special rare dry gin that is hyper-concentrated using twice as many botanicals as its bottled gin.

The Melbourne distiller also created its own tonic for the cans in order to get the mix just right and ensure the flavour is just as good as a G&T you'd make using a bottle of Four Pillars. "We set out to make a gin and tonic, not a tonic and gin, so the ratios were really important," distiller Cam Mackenzie said.

With summer on its way and restrictions beginning to roll back for states that have been in lockdown over winter, Four Pillars has launched the cans just in time for all your future picnics and trips to the beach.

Each 250-millilitre can will be 5.1-percent alcohol and will come in four-packs for $27.99. If you want to get your hands on some, you can expect to see them begin to pop up throughout October and they'll be available from Four Pillars' Healesville and Surry Hills outposts, plus all the classic bottle shops you'd expect like Dan Murphy's, BWS, Liquorland, and independent sellers.

Head to the Four Pillars website to read more about the new G&T RTDs.
