Sitting as the tallest amongst a group of heritage-listed brick buildings, John Mills Himself is hard to miss with its logo displayed proudly on the face of the building. Doubling as a cafe during the day and transforming into a secluded gin bar in the night, John Mills Himself is housed on the ground floor of the building. As one of the best gin bars Brisbane has to offer, John Mills Himself prides itself on quality, environmental sustainability, and the best practice of ethics in the gin scene. In an attempt to follow through with their philosophy the gin bar is committed to sourcing all of its products locally, pioneering the idea of ‘Drink Miles’, a concept akin to ‘food miles’ that looks at the carbon footprint associated with the transportation of imported goods. Many craft distillers were formerly farmers, who struggled with low crop yield and instead of turning to the drink, turned to make drinks, and John Mills Himself is here to support that cause. The drinks menu at John Mills Himself changes almost weekly, and because of the ever-changing landscape, a map of the current options can be found on their website.
