Our distillery gin refill service

Bring back your empties and we’ll top them up with the good stuff!

Back in 2022, we trialled our first-ever gin refill service at our Healesville Distillery during our gin birthday aross the first weekend of December.

It was a long-time coming, as reducing glass waste is a big priority for us and we wanted to do it in a way that was good for the planet and also good for our beloved gin friends. 

Well, we’re absolutely pumped to announce that we’re bringing this service back, for good!! 

So how does it work?  


We are now accepting any empty 700mL Four Pillars Gin bottles brought into the right-side building of the distillery, aka the original space. Bring them in any day of the week during our normal trading hours: 
Sun – Thu: 10.30am – 5.30pm (last drinks 5:15pm) 

Fri – Sat: 10.30am – 9pm (last drinks 8:45pm) 

We’ll take your empty from you, give it a good clean, then refill it with Rare Dry Gin or Bloody Shiraz Gin (dealer’s choice) and slap a brand-new label on the bottle so you won’t go confusing it with the old one. 

How much will my refill cost? 

We’re throwing in a $10 discount for all refills, so it’s $68 for a bottle of Rare Dry Gin and $78 for a bottle of Bloody Shiraz Gin. 


Our Surry Hills Gin Lab is also getting on board with a return service of its own, just with a slight difference. 

If you bring back an empty 700mL Four Pillars Gin bottle to our Surry Hills Gin Shop, we’ll give you $10 off a new bottle of gin. Each empty bottle grants you another $10 credit to put towards a different bottle of gin.  

All of the bottles returned will get a second life as the vessel that stores and pours our pre-batched cocktails at events. Reducing glass waste AND drinking a cocktail while you do it? Sign us up.
