Clear winner: Four Pillars Gin dinner at Circa, the Prince

Gin fiends, clear your calendar for Wednesday 26 August, as the distillation darlings at Four Pillars Gin team up with Circa, the Prince for a fabulous four-course feast.

Held in Circa’s plush private dining room, this intimate dinner for just 20 people will see Circa’s executive chef Ashly Hicks present four boundary-pushing dishes, each matched to a custom cocktail made using Four Pillars Gin.

The Yarra Valley’s Four Pillars has been going gangbusters of late, with a quartet of gins that now includes the Rare Dry, Navy Strength, Barrel Aged and Negroni Spiced versions. Ashly will draw on the botanicals and unique flavour profile of each gin, enhancing his cuisine with a fluffy of flowers, citrus and spice.
