If you’ve been driving down the Maroonday Hwy through Healesville and haven’t noticed the stunning new Four Pillars Distillery on the left hand side before the Shell Service Station, it’s entirely forgivable. I used to avert my eyes too when it was the old timber yard. But in its place is the new glorious home of one of the finest crafted gins in Australia, Four Pillars.
I loved getting in there and shooting the venue as it just opened its doors for the first time. Having also had the opportunity to listen to a gin masterclass by co-founder Cam McKenzie, I didn’t realise how little I know about gin and its incredible history.
It’s so great to see Healesville attracting these wonderful enterprises that really add to the growing culture of the town. We may be booze heads, but we’re sophisticated booze heads!
