Gin Masterclasses at Four Pillars
Time Out says
Learn from the gin-making geniuses at Surry Hills' latest Melbourne import
Renowned Melbourne-born gin-maker Four Pillars set up its first Sydney outpost in the heart of Surry Hills earlier this year, featuring a laboratory, functioning distillery and cocktail bar. Now, it's shaking – not stirring – up your weekends with a new take on Sunday afternoon drinks.
Across the month of November, the Four Pillars team will be running cocktail and gin masterclasses, tailored to the brand's latest drop, the long-awaited, annually released Australian Christmas Gin. For an education on all things gin, sit down with Four Pillars co-founder Stu Gregor for an hour while you nibble on bar snacks and taste all manner of their boozy offerings, and discover more about the concepts behind the distilling and the seasonal releases.
And how better to honour the smooth, textural flavours of its newest creation than to learn how to mix it up in one of the most foundational gin-based cocktails? On alternate weeks, cocktail maestro James Irvine, Four Pillars' 'creative director of gin drinks' (name a better job title) will also be hosting Sunday masterclasses, but these ones will focus on seasonally tailored, delicious Christmas Gin cocktails.
Classes are on every Sunday in November from 3.30pm. Book online here.
