Get ready for a big Saturday night with cocktail hour at Four Pillars Distillery!
Join us in our new private masterclass space overlooking the Four Pillars distillery, to see where the gin-making magic happens and learn all about the craft of cocktail making with one of our bartender gurus. With a Rare Dry G&T in hand to kickstart your evening, you’ll meet our magnificent copper pot stills Wilma, Jude, Eileen and Beth. Hear a little bit about the craft of distilling at Four Pillars, and what exactly makes a good G&T.
Then get stuck into a hands-on workshop, making a Tom Collins under our bartender’s expert instruction. This classic long cocktail is the most famous of the ‘Collinses’ and we’ll guide you through how to make one, and what exactly are a sour and a fizz (you’ll get to hear all about Jerry Thomas and the Tom Collins hoax of 1874…).
While you sip on your Tom Collins, and nibble some great local olives and nuts, we’ll demonstrate how to make another boozy cocktail – and make sure there’s enough for everyone to sample!
After all that cocktail making and drinking, you can either grab another drink in our bar (open until 9pm) or head down the street for dinner at one of the great restaurants in Healesville. So line up a place to stay in The ‘Ville (one hour from the CBD) and make a night of it…
Includes a hands-on cocktail-making experience, tasting, two gin cocktails and one sample cocktail plus bar snacks.
