MAKING GIN DRINKS

At Four Pillars we believe there’s a perfect gin drink for every occasion.

Our job is to make sure you’ve got the perfect gin for every type of drink.

We want you to enjoy simple and delicious gin drinks at home, while our bartender friends can explore their technique and creativity to the full.

We love the genius of a perfect G&T, but we’ve always loved pushing the boundaries of gin drinks as far as we push the boundaries of gin at our Distillery in Healesville. And now we have our Laboratory in Surry Hills, home to some of the most creative and awesome gin-fuelled fun on the planet.

We love gin drinks that highlight their ingredients, tell a story and (above all) taste delicious.

Let’s be honest, having a ‘philosophy’ on the craft of making gin drinks is potentially very pretentious. We’re simply trying to make a range of gins that taste delicious and deliciously different from each other.

Our gins shine with a single mixer, and make extraordinary cocktails in some of the world’s best bars. You don’t have to acidulate a carrot or sous vide an ox tongue to make a great drink with Four Pillars. Of course if that’s your jam you can pop into our Laboratory in Sydney and our Creative Director of Gin Drinks, James Irvine, will take you through a whole range of frankly genius techniques to make remarkable drinks.

So that’s our simple philosophy. Give you the tools (and the gins) to make simple but great drinks at home. And give you the all the bells, quite a few whistles and some serious technique when you come to one of our homes (in Healesville, Yarra Valley and Sydney’s Surry Hills) or when you meet us in one of the great bars of the world.

We believe every great drink made with our gins should showcase the gin above all.

When it comes to making great gin drinks, where to begin? First, try the gin neat (from the fridge), or with a splash of tonic or soda. These are the ways to look at a gin in its purest form.

Then look to the classics, which the building blocks for creating new cocktails. From a simple Martini you can move to a Gibson or Martinez, from a classic Negroni there’s a White Negroni, a Bijou or a Jasmine.

Next you can experiment. Pair the gin botanicals with other citrus or spice. Play with contrasts like savoury and sweet, rich and acidic. Think about seasonality of ingredients. Above all, make it tasty and with not too many ingredients.
