At Four Pillars we love making and drinking gin all year round. But we love summer most of all. Our Australian summer is hot and long (too hot, and too long), but that gives us plenty of time to enjoy our gins in some perfect summer drinks.
You'll find each of our hero gins in a refreshing drink tailored to the Australian summer. A perfect Rare Dry G&T in the baking heat of the beach. An ice cold Spiced Negroni Gin Spritz by the pool. A delicious Bloody & Lemon as the sun goes down in wine country. And a spicy Navy Strength Ginger Mule high above the city on a hot summer night. And this summer we’re bringing the gin bar to some of our favourite cultural festivals in Melbourne, Sydney and beyond. Running through until March is Melbourne’s annual architectural installation MPavilion, where you can enjoy a Rare Dry G&T in the Queen Victoria Gardens every evening.
In January we're in Sydney, with our four favourite summer drinks available at Sydney Festival’s Speigeltent in Hyde Park. February is all about our Gin + Film festival with sizzling summer screenings matched to our refreshing summer serves in three of our fave independent cinemas - Golden Age Cinema for you Sydney folk, Thornbury Picture House for Melburnians and Academy Cinemas for our Auckland friends. Join us at Melbourne's newest summer festival, Can't Do Tomorrow, where we will be celebrating urban art and contemporary culture complete with Four Pillars Gin in hand.
Plus there will be excellent Four Pillars drinking to be had at some great watering holes across the nation. Melburnians, sip on a Miami Pink Gin Spritz at Arbory Afloat or a Rare Dry G&T on the rooftop of QT Melbourne. Enjoy our perfect summer serves at Gazi Restaurant in true grand slam style over the Aus Open, or join us for an exclusive distillery tour and tasting of our four summer go-to gins at our little gin shed for Melbourne Cocktail Week. Gin lovers in Sydney will be able to enjoy all four of our fave signature summer serves from the Four Pillars bar at Manly Wharf Bar.
And to inspire your Four Pillars summer drinking at home or out and about, we’ve got these fabulous risograph-printed posters around town and these cheeky little animations below popping up in the digital world too. All capture the essence of a Aussie summer. The afternoon on the beach. A refreshing dip in the pool while the cicadas sing. Walking along a dusty country road in the heat. Heading out on the town when it’s light and warm at 9pm. All with an ice-cold Four Pillars gin drink to quench your thirst.
