Four Pillars is opening a new gin and drinks lab in Surry Hills

Drink / September 11, 2019

Attention, gin lovers! Four Pillars Gin will soon have its very own home base in Sydney.

Four Pillars have gone from strength to strength in 2019. Earlier this year they sold 50% of their business to beverage bigwig Lion, and since then they have proved seemingly unstoppable in the global gin market.

Now in their latest move, they are setting up a new home base in sunny Sydney. From early 2020, following plan approval, Four Pillars will be opening a dedicated gin and drinks lab in Surry Hills.

Taking over the 1930s Bussell Bros. building, adjacent to The Dolphin, the team will bring their 70L Carl still ‘Eileen’ up from Healesville, Victoria to be on the premises. This will allow them to make small batches of perfectly crafted gin with groups large and small.

With plans to distill gin on site, Creative Director of Drinks, James Irvine, will have an outrageously specced bar to showcase all the delicious drinks you can do with Four Pillars as a base.

Pending approval, soon you’ll also be able to pop in for an after work tipple with a small bar license in the works.

While they’re at it, they will also have a retail store selling Four Pillars Gin products including an ever-growing range of Made From Gin products. This will include marmalade, Gin Pig Salami and Hunted & Gathered chocolate in addition to bar kits, t-shirts, gin books and drinking miscellany.

Down the track, you can also expect a space for masterclasses, corporate events, tastings and gin gatherings for one and all.

While details as to the opening date are still scant at this point, we can safely say that Four Pillars will make for a welcomed addition to Surry Hills vibrant drinks scene in the not-so-distant future.
