World Gin Day is once again upon us this Saturday 10th June! Bars and distillers have been getting their heads together to educate, intoxicate and most of all, celebrate gin, and while you’re in the midst of a long weekend, why not give in? To help you about your day, I’ve found you some stunning events to cover you from Brunch to Nightcaps…Enjoy!
Come and join Carter, Smith, Devlin & Co for a gin tasting night in association with Four Pillars Gin Distillery.
Four Pillars is located in the Yarra Valley, and it is their ambition to elevate the craft of distilling in Australia and celebrate the art of cocktail making. Following this drive, they have achieved a number of gold medals and awards throughout Australia and internationally for the exceptional quality of their products.
Listen to Sam from Four Pillars as he takes you on a journey through the Four Pillars story and philosophy, speaking about the creation and history of their different gins and exclusive cocktails while you taste.
Cocktails and tastings matched with a four-course menu from our award winning chef.
Four Pillars return to Circa for an intimate affair, perfect for gin enthusiasts and those a little gin curious.
Four Pillars, four gins, four inspired courses to match.
Circa’s Rhys Blackley has devised a menu of unique and delicate flavours designed to complement the incredible array of botanicals found in Four Pillars Gin, playing with the textures in each spirit with expertly sourced and seasonal food offerings.
The intimate dinner, to be hosted by Four Pillar’s distiller Cameron MacKenzie will be held in Circa’s Private Dining Room and will feature custom cocktails made using Four Pillars Rare Dry, Barrel Aged, Navy Strength, and Negroni Spiced gins.
Though there’s nothing more English than a G&T, it originally comes from Holland. We came across it while fighting the Thirty Years’ War in the 17th century. The Dutch soldiers were drinking ‘Jenever’, a medicinal drink to boost morale before heading into battle. That’s where the term ‘Dutch Courage’ comes from…who knew!
