Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The renowned Melbourne-born distilleries first Sydney outpost in the heart of Surry Hills

Sydney is home to a respectable number of top boutique distilleries, but the city's gin lovers have probably spied with envious eyes Melbourne's claim to one of the best brands in the business, namely Four Pillars.

Well, now these Victorian juniper whisperers have planted their flag in the heart of Surry Hills, with a trio of venues all under one roof.

First and perhaps foremost, there's the gin shop, where the distillery's full range – including all of its limited-edition varieties and its wildly popular Bloody Shiraz gin – will be available for purchase. Then there's the gin lab, where visitors take part in tasting workshops and even experiment with the boozy botanicals, under the guiding hand of Four Pillars' master distillers. Finally, there's Eileen's Bar – so named after the 70-litre still that has been imported to Sydney from Four Pillars' Healesville distillery – where you can take an elbow, enjoy some bar snacks and sample cocktails showcasing Four Pillars in all its forms.

The venue also houses Four Pillars' swish cocktail bar Eileen's, which since opening last May has quickly become a popular go-to for the discerning drinkers of Surry Hills.
