Flinders Lane bar The Mill House is getting a head-start on spring, this week launching a brand new Thursday night Gin Club off the back of its new G&T menu. Each week, punters will have the chance to sample bespoke gin creations from just $10, while bi-monthly events will see The Mill House team up with some of the most celebrated craft gin producers from across Australia and the world.
Helping to kick things off this Thursday, August 31, is Yarra Valley distillery Four Pillars, who've planned an evening made for gin-thusiasts. The Mill House kitchen will plate up a selection of canapés either inspired by or infused with Four Pillars gin — think prawn crackers topped with gin-cured salmon and roe, and Manchego cheese and corn croquettes with pickled pumpkin — while Four Pillars ambassador Samuel Ng will host tastings of the label's core gins and exclusive releases. The bar will also be whipping up an array of signature gin drinks, like the Flinders Lane Fling — a blend of dry gin, brandy and lemon juice, with honey water, soda, absinthe and rosemary — while resident DJs keep the party going well into the evening.
Future co-hosts include the likes of Sydney distilleries Archie Rose and Poor Toms, and Brunswick newcomer Patient Wolf.
To celebrate this week's launch, The Mill House is giving out complimentary G&Ts from 6pm this Thursday. To score one, you'll have to be one of the first 100 people through the door to use the code phrase 'get together, come undone'.
