Visited for a quiet Saturday afternoon tipple. Atmosphere was relaxed and the staff friendly and knowledgeable. Light snack of nuts with a beer and also tried a couple of different gins. Great experience. Will return over the summer.

Elton gave us thirty minutes of pure entertainment while educating us (a little) about the manufacture and tasting etiquette of gin. A steal for only ten bucks (and you get it back on a bottle purchase). Do not miss this if you are in the...More

Elton, I couldn’t do it! You told us to listen to your heart, and you didn’t know who sang it (Shame) 😂 but I couldn’t give you 1 Star. Payed the $10 for the gin tasting, Not only do you get to taste these beautifully...More

Bucket list ticked! Always wanted to do a tasting. The $10 charge was money well spent for a 30 minute tasting of 5 gins. Rhys was thoroughly knowledgeable and I learnt so much. He is such a bonus to the business. The gins are amazing...More

Well worth a visit especially if your one of the ever increasing band of Gin lovers. Bret guided us through the flavours, ingredients and technic. Also helped with advice on a few local tonics.

Visited Four Pillars on Saturday with work colleagues. Although it was busy we didn't have to wait long to do tastings. Elton was a fabulous host, very informative and funny! I would definitely recommend a visit when in the area.
