Fellowship Activity – Lunch at Four Pillars Gin Winery – Healesville
February 25, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Four Pillars is a small Australian distillery in the Yarra Valley. Our ambition is to make the best craft spirits in Australia, and our first release will be a batch-
We established Four Pillars with a focus on gin. But great gin doesn’t just make itself. We recognised that our real focus would need to be on the craft of distilling.If we could elevate this area of expertise in Australia, and bring a modern Australian sensibility to the process, then maybe we could make a gin worth shouting about.
In October 2015 we moved into our new home, a gorgeous old timber yard on the main drag of Healesville, about an hour’s drive from the CBD of Melbourne. The Four Pillars Distillery houses our original copper still Wilma and her two new siblings, Jude and Eileen. All three of our stills are manufactured by Carl in Germany and deliver unbelievable purity of spirit, drawing extraordinary botanical flavour from the combination of rare, native and traditional botanicals we use.
We currently have six gins in our range (and counting) and two marmalades that are made using the fresh organic oranges that are steamed during the distallation process. Everything we do is designed to elevate the craft of distilling in Australia, and we hope you agree we’re on the right path. The judges at prestigious international competitions must think so, as since the launch in 2013 our three main variants have won gold medals at major competitions around the world.
But dont just take our word for it! Come and see and taste it all for yourself. Our distillery also houses a fully functioning tasting room and a bar serving G&T paddles, build-your own Negronis, Scotty’s Ginger Mules, beer, wine, tea, coffee and really good nuts and olives. There are also tours, masterclasses, and all manner of fun.
