Four Pillars Becomes Australia’s Newest Carbon-Neutral Distillery

Do I need to introduce Four Pillars? The Victorian distillery was one of the initial regional distilleries to help drive the gin boom in Victoria, and now, almost ten years since the Healesville distillery first opened, Four Pillars has become Australia’s first carbon-neutral distillery.

The Four Pillars team has just completed a $7million renovation of their distillery completed by Breathe Architecture.

“From the very first day we distilled gin, we have tried to recycle, re-use and replenish our environment and give back to the community. We cannot give more to the community than assure it that our gins tread carefully on our planet, especially in this time of climate crisis,” he says.

“Our journey to carbon-neutral began with the simple idea of reusing oranges for marmalade, giving spent botanicals to pigs for feed, putting solar panels on our roof and of course offsetting what can be an energy-intensive production process by carefully purchasing mainly domestic carbon credits.” Four Pillars co-founder, Stuart Gregor told Smart Company.

Four Pillars recently released its Yuzu Gin, buy it here.
