Sydney, it’s back – your chance to join Stuart Gregor for a Four Pillars Gin masterclass on the craft of distilling and the very fine art of cocktail making.
After you arrive at the fabulous Work-Shop in Redfern, we’ll get you in the mood with a Four Pillars Gin and Fever-Tree Tonic 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 exactly makes it "Navy Strength".
Finally, we’ll have a quick chat about cocktails, why gin is the spirit of choice for all the best bartenders, and how to make the Four Pillars favourite, a Negroni. And of course you’ll get to sample one of these perfect cocktails before heading on to whatever the rest of your Wednesday night holds (the first stop of which might be the Eat Art Truck-curated food truck parked outside on Cleveland St).
Tickets are $55 for the 90 minute masterclass (6.30-8.00pm) including welcome G&T, tasting of Four Pillars Rare Dry, Barrel Aged and Navy Strength gins, some nibbles to keep your strength up, and a sample of the Negroni cocktail.
