As if we needed a reason to enjoy a bit of Mother's Ruin, this Saturday, June 10 is World Gin Day — and the team at Four Pillars are keen to mark the occasion. The Healesville distillery will play host to a big ol' boozy shindig over the long weekend, complete with nosh from Bluebonnet Barbecue's food truck (affectionately named Mabel) and free samples from the entire Four Pillars range. This includes the new batch of their Bloody Shiraz Gin, which has been steeped in and blended with Shiraz grapes from the Yarra Valley.
Open from 10.30am on Saturday, Sunday and Monday (that's June 10–12), the distillery will dole out top-notch G&Ts, scones topped with Four Pillars' orange marmalade and Bluebonnet's pulled 'gin' pork burgers, which will use meat from pigs who were fed the botanicals left over after each Four Pillars distillation.
The distillery will be open Saturday, June 10 from 10.30am till 9pm, and Sunday, June 11 and Monday, June 12 from 10.30am till 5.30pm.
