Local fisherfolk caught in the parking fine net

FIsherfolk have been caught in the net of parking fines designed to stop travellers parking up for the night on the Tweed Coast Road and they are seeking help to access their beaches at night without fines.

On Wednesday 25 April, Four Pillars, described as an ‘award-winning, all-Aussie’ gin, will be hosting a Gin Pig Dinner at Beach Byron Bay. The dinner matches gin and pig, as you sip on Four Pillars cocktails and enjoy the latest batch of Pure Black Berkshire pigs from the Yarra Valley.

These pigs have been pasture bred and fed on spent gin botanicals for the Four Pillars distillations, making these pigs possibly the tastiest pigs in the world.

Four Pillars Gin


Four Pillars signature gin is their Rare Dry Gin, and if you’re looking for a gin cocktail that’s a bit out of the ordinary, try this:

The Aviation

50ml Rare Dry Gin

10ml Maraschino liqueur

7.5ml Crème de Violette

25ml lemon juice

Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into a chilled coupette glass and garnish with a Maraschino cherry.

You can find Four Pillars at the Great Northern Hotel, Rae’s Restaurant on Wategos, Byron at Byron Resort, The Balcony, Bolt Hole, Three Blue Ducks and The Cellar Byron, amongst other local venues.
