      Join us for a hands-on gin making session with one of our Four Pillars Gin distillers. These classes are limited to just 10 people each distillation – so get your ticket pronto! In this workshop we will guide you through the Four Pillars distillery and gin-making process before you have the chance to work on a ‘micro-distillation’ in our newest (and smallest) CARL copper still, Eileen. After you’ve added the botanicals to the still, our distiller will take you through a brief history of gin and the rise of craft distilling in Australia. All the while you can watch the distillation bubbling away and admire the process in action, before tasting the spirit as it comes out of the still at an unbelievably pure 90% ABV once the distillation is complete. Plus you’ll get to taste five of the gins we’ve produced since we launched in 2013, and nibble on some tasty bar snacks to keep your strength up while you sip. Try our award-winning Rare Dry Gin, the 'gunpowder proof’ Navy Strength Gin, the sought-after Spiced Negroni Gin, the gold-medalled Modern Australian Gin, and something new to the range. At the end of the class you’ll walk away with a goodie bag including a 200ml bottle of Rare Dry Gin (RRP $27), a 500ml bottle of our favourite Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic (RRP $5), and a jar of Four Pillars marmalade (RRP $9). The super-small-batch ‘Maker Session Gin' the group distilled will be bottled at 700ml, hand-labelled and sent to you after the class (RRP $90). FAQs Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? You must be at least 18 years of age to attend this event.  What's the refund policy?

Date changes also require at least 7 days notice. If you would like to cancel or exchange your tickets, please email
