Breathe has joined forces with Four Pillars Gin to create a new, immersive gin experience in their birthplace, Healesville. Born and raised in this stunning part of the Yarra Valley surrounded by mountains, temperate rainforest, oaks, and elms, throughout the design we acknowledge Four Pillars’ origin, their history, and their deep connection to the place where it all began.


While nearly tripling the capacity for visitors, the expansion delivers a much-needed new production space, an outdoor gin garden, tuckshop, dedicated gin shop, a custom-built bar, and events space cementing Four Pillars as the largest gin-focussed distillery in Australia.


The new distillery was designed not just to increase production capacity, but also to champion Four Pillars’ future, taking their place on the world stage as a global leader in quality, craft, gin. It is a place where curious visitors and connoisseurs alike can engage with the entire distillation and bottling process while enjoying an exceptional food and beverage experience.


Importantly, this project will see Four Pillars continue their commitment to sustainability and community with the implementation of new sustainability initiatives and the creation of countless local jobs.⁠⁠ The design helped Four Pillars become Australia’s first carbon-neutral gin business. 100% fossil fuel-free, sustainability is embedded from the copper veil, the 100 kW solar rooftop, the recycled masonry throughout to a restrained and crafted natural material palette that infuses hints of nature into this exceptional distillery installation. Ongoing waste minimisation was important to the project. All steel, concrete, and timber waste was recycled during construction. None of the excavation went to landfill. Gin is piped directly into the main bar from production through featured copper pipes that will see the site save 29 tonnes of glass per year.


This project sees Four Pillars create an energetic hospitality destination to complement their incredible spirit.
