Hartsyard × Four Pillars Spring Gin Lunch

Hartsyard is teaming up with distillers Four Pillars to celebrate the arrival of Spring with an all-Australian menu.


On Sunday 1st September 2019, Hartsyard owners Dorothy Lee and Jarrod Walsh are hosting a very special ‘Spring Gin Lunch’ with James Irvine, Creative Director of Gin Drinks at Four Pillars.


James will be showcasing five cocktails including two varietals of Negroni curated for 2019 Negroni Week, inspired by the Australian landscape and featuring various gins made by Four Pillars. More info on these unique creations below:


WOODLAND: A herbaceous Negroni based on their Rare Dry Gin, inspired by the contrasts of Australia’s river systems and woodlands – Four Pillars have even snuck in some ‘orange’ wine and moss. Made with Rare Dry Gin, Campari, paperbark-smoked rosella, ‘orange wine’, pine needle and moss, this Negroni is ready for you to pour over ice and garnish with orange zest.

DESERT: A bright, bold and distinct Negroni based on their Bloody Shiraz Gin with inspiration drawn from the deserts of Australia. Indigenous blood limes and smoke add texture and aroma. This Negroni brings together Bloody Shiraz Gin, Campari, charred blood plum and desert lime. To enjoy it, just pour over ice and garnish with lemon.

OUR FAVOURITE G&T: Rare Dry Gin, Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic, orange

BALAYAGE: Spiced Negroni Gin, stone fruit medley, vetiver, ginger leaf, fizz

TANLINES: Modern Australian Gin, ‘Le Tan’, lime leaf 


Dorothy and Jarrod have curated an exciting five-course menu featuring native Australian ingredients designed to pair beautifully with the cocktail list. Dishes include paperbark-smoked kangaroo, native pastrami hanger steak with beef jus made from Four Pillars’ Shiraz Gin, wattle seed crackers and eucalyptus meringue.
