The Four Pillars Australian [Gin] Open is a nationwide bartender competition where we challenge you, our friends and lovers in the great bars of Great Britain, to turn our better gin into better gin drinks.

You make the drinks, we drink them. And in the end, two of the United Kingdom’s greatest bartenders win the trip of a lifetime to make their very own in with us in Australia.

The participating regions include:

  • The Midlands and South West (including Wales ), with a regional final in Bristol
