    Fabulous gin, industrial vibe. Great bartenders

    My partner and I went to a gin blending class for his birthday. As a non gin drinker I wondered if I would enjoy it. I left knowing lots more about how gin is made, about Archie Rose and their gin and they have gained a new gin fan 😁 I'd highly re commend the class, Michael our guide was informative and fun. Don't forget to enjoy a post class gin, try the apple juice and gin it's delicious.

    Make Your Own Gin!

    As I walked into the rather industrial-looking bar, I was immediately warmly welcomed by enthusiastic bartender Michael. He showed me a selection of Archie Rose gins and suggested ones for me to try as I was early for the gin-making experience and tour. Michael was passionate and knowledgeable and explained the botanicals and flavours I should expect as a result. I tried Bush gin (40 proof) with their own tonic water; Australian Green Ant (42 proof); Distiller's Strength (52.4 proof) with Fevertree tonic; and finished with a Never Never (54 proof) Gibson cocktail (big juniper flavour). This in itself was a fantastic and interesting, albeit intoxicating experience.

    The tour started at 6pm, led by Kat, who gave a most interesting, engaging, and entertaining potted history of gin as we toured the distillery before leading us upstairs to try to make our own gin. We were faced with large tables with Lazy-Susan boards for each person containing small quantities of 8 botanical essences in Glencairn whisky-tasting glasses with lids and a small glass of Archie Rose gin. We had an eye-dropper in purified water, 2 x 300ml of plain distilled ethanol base gin, and mixing beakers. Kat explained each of the botanicals and what effect they would have comprising juniper, coriander, honey, citrus, rose, etc. and how much we should use - a drop at a time. Most entertaining! I'm not sure that my concoctions will win any prizes but it was great fun and most enjoyable, and we got to keep "our"…

    Booked in to make my own Gin class and it was great!

    We were a small group and it went for just over an hour. Great background information on AR and the history behind Gin. Took home 2 small bottles of my own brew and received a $10 discount off any Gin + 12 premixed cans of AR Gin. Definitely recommend if you're keen on Gin and love Archie Rose!
