Melbourne’s largest outdoor floating bar and restaurant Arbory Afloat, and two-time awarded International Gin Producer of the Year, Yarra Valley distillery Four Pillars, have come together again to craft an exclusive pink gin to be enjoyed at Afloat, and (for the first time) in your own home as limited release bottles will be available for purchase from 9 February.
As going overseas is not on the radar for most of us this summer, Arbory Afloat and Four Pillars are celebrating the mellow vibes and old-school good times of the great Australian beach house with their new and exclusive pink gin dubbed ‘Arbory Afloat x Four Pillars Beach House Gin’. The gin is packed full of citrus tones, utilising lemon myrtle as well as grapefruit, orange and lemon peel, which is balanced to the luscious flavours of sweet strawberry gum, pineapple sage and plump Davidson plums to create a pink gin that’s as delicious and colourful as a summer’s day at a beach house.
In 2019, Arbory Afloat and Four Pillars created a limited-edition ‘Miami Pink Gin’ exclusively available to taste in venue. This season, the pink ‘Beach House Gin’ is available to taste at Afloat on tap and in cocktails. And soon you will be able to get your hands on a bottle of the pink gin to make your very own cocktails at home.
Arbory Afloat x Four Pillars Beach House Gin bottles will be available for purchase from 8am on Tuesday 9 February until sold out. Bottles can be purchased in venue at Arbory Afloat for $90 per bottle.
The pink ‘Beach House Gin’ will also be available to purchase in a gin & tonic bundle, paired with a bespoke Arbory Afloat x StrangeLove Beach House Tonic four-pack for $100.
This year’s label design was a collaboration between Melbourne-based design studio 21-19 and Finnish artist and illustrator Antti Kalevi. The design captures the laid back Australian beachside feel we’re all familiar with. Antti’s effortless mix of shape and textile form an abstract landscape that captures that spirit.
To celebrate its arrival, Arbory Afloat and Four Pillars have teamed up to host a special Beach House Gin beach party right in the heart of the CBD. On Thursday 4 February, guests can party all night long on Arbory Afloat’s Pool Deck with oysters, canapés and different tastes of the gin with three cocktails on offer and entertainment from Harvey Miller Mobile Beach Club DJ of the popular Melbourne duo Client Liaison. Bottles of the new gin will be exclusively available to guests attending the launch for purchase on the night. Tickets are on sale via www.arboryafloat.com.au.
