Overview
More
This former timber yard has been transformed into a fully functioning gin distillery over 700 square metres, featuring our two German sister-stills Wilma and Jude, (and soon their miniature sister Eileen) and a new hospitality space showcasing the many facets of gin. At the Distillery Door you'll find all styles of Four Pillars Gins for tasting and sale, a long copper bar serving paddles of G&T three ways, design-your-own Negronis, Ginger Mules (gin and ginger beer), really good nuts and olives, gin-steamed marmalade on toast, great coffee and even beer and wine if you ask real nice. We have seating both inside and out and also regularly host masterclasses run by our distiller and Healesville local, Cameron Mackenzie, the heart and soul of Four Pillars Gin. Details of our next masterclasses and events are always available on our Facebook page and on our website. Four Pillars Gin launched in December 2013 and has gone on to win a swag of awards at home and around the globe.

Only went for the gin tasting but was very informative. We were lucky to get the tasting held in the factory with the distiller vats so even better. Partner loves four pillars gin so was very happy.

Good admosphere, and has a great vibe about the place. Although it was around 11am when we visited, the gin was amazing, despite the guilt of consuming alcohol so early in the morning. The staff were friendly and helpful and would definitely return when we...More
