Overview
More
This former timber yard has been transformed into a fully functioning gin distillery over 700 square metres, featuring our two German sister-stills Wilma and Jude, (and soon their miniature sister Eileen) and a new hospitality space showcasing the many facets of gin. At the Distillery Door you'll find all styles of Four Pillars Gins for tasting and sale, a long copper bar serving paddles of G&T three ways, design-your-own Negronis, Ginger Mules (gin and ginger beer), really good nuts and olives, gin-steamed marmalade on toast, great coffee and even beer and wine if you ask real nice. We have seating both inside and out and also regularly host masterclasses run by our distiller and Healesville local, Cameron Mackenzie, the heart and soul of Four Pillars Gin. Details of our next masterclasses and events are always available on our Facebook page and on our website. Four Pillars Gin launched in December 2013 and has gone on to win a swag of awards at home and around the globe.

This was somewhere I really wanted to visit. It didn’t disappoint. Everything was well explained. You could do a straight gin tasting of 5 gins for $10 which was refunded if you spent over $75 on a bottle of gin. I opted for the $12...More

Really great Gin and a great concept. Loved the Shiraz gin. Paid $12 for the testing of 3 gins, quite strong in alcohol % but not at all over powering in taste. Would be great if they served a tasting plate of food regularly, people...More

Hi Wendy! So glad you liked the gin, and the distillery. We've made the decision to keep food service really simple, just limited to a few nibbles, so we can focus on what we're good at....the gin! We do sometimes have food trucks to visit,...More
