Don’t miss this Sydney first – a Four PIllars Gin masterclass on the craft of distilling and the craft of cocktail making. Stuart Gregor (Four Pillars founder) and Dylan Howarth (The Drink Cabinet) will take you through all the ins and outs of craft gin distilling, and the very fine craft of cocktail making.

We’ll get you in the mood with a G&T to start. Then, while you sip, Stu will give a little bit of a history on gin and distilling, and the current flourishing of the Australian craft spirit industry.

Moving on to a tasting of all three Four Pillars gins (Rare Dry, Barrel Aged, Navy Strength), Stu will take you through how they’re made including the botanicals involved, the distillation process, how we barrel age using a solera system, and what makes it Navy Strength.

Finally, we’ll cover the basics of cocktail making, why gin is the spirit of choice for all the best bartenders, and how to make two classic cocktails (an Army & Navy and a Negroni) at home. And of course you’ll get to sample the resulting cocktails (one shaken and one stirred) before heading on to whatever the rest of your Wednesday night holds.
