Four Pillars Gin Original Festive Drinks

Friends near or far, wherever you find yourselves, we hope you have a fantastic, fun-filled and safe festive season.

After the year you’ve all had, you deserve the best bloody holiday season ever. And not just those of you who get to enjoy your festivities served up with a big dose of Australian sunshine. We’re also thinking about those Australians and lovers of Australian gin who’ll be enjoying a cold, wintery Christmas and New Year over in the UK.

For all of you (and anyone who likes a bit of old-school glitz in their holiday season) our resident Creative Director of Gin Drinks, James Irvine, has taken time out from running Eileen’s Bar at our Four Pillars Laboratory in Surry Hills to put together this banging list of original and adapted gin drinks to get the festive party started. Cheers!
