While Sydney’s history is uniquely coloured by a once-thriving local distilling industry and culture, our City has been without a dedicated distillery for far too long – until now.
As a team of passionate new world distillers, Archie Rose Distilling Co. is dedicated to honouring our rich spirit-making past, and shaping its future with the launch of our boutique distillery and bar just 5km south of the Sydney CBD.
We invite you to watch our spirits being made by hand, meet our distillers and savour a drink at our custom-made distillery and bar in Rosebery, Sydney.
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 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, we 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.
Inside 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, set across a 550m2 space nestled in the heart of Rosebery, Sydney within 5 km of the CBD.
Amongst our custom-built copper pot stills, brushed steel washbacks and oak casks, we invite you to tour the distillery, chat with our distillers, sample the spirits we craft by hand and even create your own spirits from the ground up
Commitment to quality
Making spirits of outstanding quality requires a combination of perfectly calibrated equipment, experience, passion and intuition. Our thirst for exploration sees us build on our 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.
All in the sharing
For us, the true value of knowledge is in its sharing, and at Archie Rose we’re always eager to pass on to others what we’ve learned and know about distilling. From dropping in for an informal chat with our distillers to creating your very own spirits here on premises, Archie Rose is here to be shared and enjoyed.
