Captain Dudley

Deep in the origins of Old Tom gin is the man Captain Dudley Bradstreet. He's credited for allegedly finding (and exploiting) the loophole in gin laws by dispensing gin through a plaque on the side of his property wall. By preserving the server's anonymity, he was able to profit for 3 months before other establishments followed suit.

Inspired by the history behind this Old Tom style gin, Cam and the Four Pillars team developed this cocktail with a nod to Captain Dudley and his cracking tales.

Garden Street Collector's Series Edition One

This gin is a nod to you, our members. We’ve tasted hundreds of delicious Australian gins over the years and every year our tasting panel has the (really terrible) job of choosing their 12 favourite gins to share with you. It’s tough competition and they’re a very picky bunch!

Twelve months ago, we floated the idea of making something exclusively for our members; something one off and never to be repeated. It needed to be something for the collectors to add to their gin shelves and moreover, we had to make a product we were proud to share, and one delicious enough to get past our tasting panel!
