We are thrilled to partner with our friends at Four Pillars to create an Autumn inspired gin cocktail at the launch of our Autumn Group Show this Thursday, 4th May.

In true party spirit, they will be serving a Four Pillars Gin Sling, dressed with pomegranate and citrus fruits. We’ll share the recipe with you after the event.

Want to learn more about this boutique Australian gin maker producing world-class gin?
Just read on.

1. How would you describe FOUR PILLARS in one sentence?
Four Pillars is a small gin distillery based in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, producing a world-class, award-winning, modern Australian style of gin.

2. Tell us a little about the gin you kindly donated for our Autumn Group Art Show this year?
Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin is our flagship gin – our first labour of love – launched in late 2013. The Rare Dry Gin captures Asian spice, Mediterranean citrus and some native Australian botanicals. We use fresh oranges in the distillation, which gives the gin a distinct citrus note. This combined with powerful flavours and an incredibly clean spirit makes for a unique and memorable gin.

3. What will you be serving as your beverage of choice this Autumn / Winter?
Negronis! The ultimate winter gin cocktail. Equal parts Four Pillars Gin, sweet vermouth and Campari, stirred down and garnished with an orange twist – perfection!
4. Any tips to creating the perfect G&T or cocktail bar cart for easy entertaining?
The perfect G&T is simple – you just need to get the basics right! Pour 45ml of good quality gin (such as Four Pillars) into an old-fashioned glass. Fill the glass up with plenty of ice, and then top up with a good quality tonic water such as CAPI. Using a good tonic water makes a huge difference! Finally, garnish with an orange wedge, and enjoy!

5. Where can people find your gin?
Our gin is available in Dan Murphy’s stores across Australia, as well as most good independent bottle shops. If you wander into your local cocktail bar and peruse their gin selection, you should be able to spot a bottle of Four Pillars there too.

Thanks Four Pillars. We look forward to your Gin Slings tomorrow night.
