The Four Pillars Australian [Gin] Open is coming to Asia: a cocktail competition across six of the region's greatest cities.

This competition challenges you; our friends and lovers in the great bars of Asia; to turn our gin into your gin drinks.

Four Pillars Australian [Gin] Open is a cocktail competition with a number of stages, starting with you submitting one fabulous drink made with our award-winning Rare Dry Gin. Check out the FULL ENTRY DETAILS and all ENTRY FORMS here.

It begins in each participating city and culminates in a Grand Final in which each Regional Finalist competes to become the Four Pillars Australian [Gin] Open Winner.

You'll be judged on a number of criteria including concept, engagement and appeal - so get creative!

You make the drinks, we drink them. And in the end, two of Asia’s greatest bartenders win the trip of a lifetime to make their very own gin with us in Australia, before being taken on an exploratory tour of the very best that Melbourne and Sydney has to offer – from cool underground bars right up to climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

This is a competition for creative, ambitious and fun-loving bartenders. So get your thinking and drinking caps on right now and start getting creative with Australia’s No.1 gin.

This year we will be coming to Singapore, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City.

Submissions open WEDNESDAY 13 FEBRUARY. Submissions close FRIDAY 15 MARCH. Contestants will need to be available for the dates for their regional finals and grand finals should they get through. Please see all important dates listed below, and email us if you have any questions.
