There are definitely some talented people in Australia. A few years ago, a Tasmanian distillery won Whisky of the year and more recently a Victoria based distillery, Four Pillars, has been awarded a Double Gold medal for the second time at one of the world’s most competitive spirits competitions.
Join us for this exclusive Gin tasting hosted by Four Pillars and presented by its Brand Ambassador Sam Ng.
