Four Pillars x Fabbrica Pasta Party

The collab you didn't know you needed.

Gin and pasta — need we say more? Award-winning gin crafter Four Pillars has teamed up with the pasta legends at Fabbrica to bring you a gin-spiked pasta sauce. As someone who loves both of those things and can't cook to save her life, this collab takes lazy girl dinner to a whole new level.

Four Pillars' Olive Leaf Gin has been mixed in with fresh tomatoes, onion, garlic and botanicals such as juniper, coriander and cardamom to create the rich, zingy sauce. "I've always loved making a dirty martini or a Gibson with Four Pillars Olive Leaf Gin, and with its Mediterranean-ish vibe, I thought it was a no-brainer to use in our newest pasta sauce," says Fabbrica Head Chef Scott McComas-Williams.

Various dishes from the Four Pillars x Fabbrica dinner on a dining table.

To try the combo yourself, come along to the Four Pillars x Fabbrica Pasta Party at the Four Pillars Lab on Friday, September 22 or Saturday, September 23. Not only will you be able to sample a lamb ragu and casarecce with the new sauce, but you'll also be able to try limited-edition cocktails, including an olive, milk and honey martini. For dessert, there's a gin-spiked hazelnut tiramisu — because, of course — paired with a Tiramisu 2.0 gin cocktail with barrel-aged gin, coffee, madeira, macadamia, chocolate and savoiardi milk.

There are no tickets required, but if you'd like to order the set menu for $85 — which includes a gin cocktail on arrival, oysters with Bloody Shiraz Yarra Valley caviar, tuna crudo and zucchini flower with ricotta, mozzarella and hot honey — you'll need to choose that option and pay ahead when you make a booking.

If you can't make it to the event or can't get enough of the sauce, pick up the ready-made Casarecce Alla Four Pillars Gin pack at Four Pillars, Fabbrica Pasta Shop or one of Fabbrica's stockists.
