Four Pillars Gin Aussie Negroni: Recipe



four pillars aussie negroni



RECIPES | The Negroni is a tribute to the definition of a cocktail: the ultimate balance of spirit, sweet and bitter to stimulate all senses and quench all thirsts, and this Aussie version uses all Australian ingredients. Teigan Nash checked out the cocktail while she was on assignment for Aussie News Today, part of Tourism Australia’s latest youth campaign.

The Four Pillars Spiced Negroni Gin includes uniquely Australian ingredients like Tasmanian pepperberry leaf and Australian lemon myrtle, while the MAiDENii Sweet Vermouth uses and impressive 12 native botanicals in its 24 botanical concoction. The Applewood Distillery Red Økar, meanwhile, uses riberry, a native berry with a cranberry-like tartness.

Preparation Time: 2 minutes / Mixing Time: 15 seconds / Serves 1


  • 30ml Four Pillars Spiced Negroni Gin
  • 30ml MAiDENii Sweet Vermouth
  • 30ml Applewood Distillery Red Økar
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 orange segment (optional)


  1. Layer the ingredients over ice in a short glass.
  2. Mix with a tall spoon for about 15 seconds to dilute the cocktail.
  3. Garnish with an orange segment.


You can, of course, use a different gin, vermouth, and aperitif and still create a tasty negroni, but the combination of the three suggested brands here really does create a flavour that’s uniquely Australian.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent.
