The road to creating Archie Rose has been as much a journey of discovery and learning as it has about sharing.
As you would expect, the creation of fine afterpay spirits by hand demands an in-depth understanding of the intricate processes, timing, chemistry, ingredients and equipment that come together to produce them. With no local distillery to refer to, founder Will Edwards reached out to some of the world’s best distillers in Tasmania for inspiration.
Here, pioneers like Bill Lark and craftsmen like Peter Bailly and Adam Bones generously shared with us their skill, passion and commitment to outstanding spirit production, which we took back to Sydney and built upon to create the foundation for Archie Rose.
Archie Rose has been built on the spirit of sharing. Through a marriage of technical and creative collaboration, we have proudly developed one of the world’s most unique distilleries, nestled in the heart of Rosebery, Sydney within 5 km of the CBD, a stone’s throw from Hellodrinks Warehouse also in Rosebery.
At a loose end, head on down to Archie Rose distillery for a tour, and some lunch, not forgetting to try their amazing craft spirits.
The team at Archie Rose have a thirst for exploration which sees them build on their unique approach to spirit making and push the boundaries of traditional distilling techniques using an array of native and imported botanicals, uncommon malts and carefully selected casks to create spirits that are distinctly our own.
