Christmas may not be on your mind just yet, but it's definitely on the mind of the Four Pillars owners, who have just launched their first pop-up distillery at the Myer Melbourne Giftorium. Opening on Friday, October 19 on level 6 of the Bourke Street department store, it's sticking around straight through to Christmas Eve and includes a store and bar — so you can shop for loved ones while enjoying a tipple of your own.
The gift shop will offer the entire Four Pillars core range of gins and merch, along with a few very limited releases including the Pure Kisumé, Dry Island and the much sought after Bloody Shiraz Gin. As it is a Christmas pop-up, there'll also be a special 2018 Australian Christmas Gin on offer from November 3.
It's a "try before you buy" sort of deal, with free tastings of the core range on offer alongside a range of $15 gin and tonics, plus a few newly curated cocktails that showcase the distillery's limited range. For those looking to get deeper into the gin game, there's also free ambassador-run tastings every Thursday at 6.30pm — and four free cocktail masterclasses at 12pm and 2pm on November 3, 10, 24 and 25. First in, best dressed.
