10 Ways to personalise your wedding with Archie Rose Distilling Co.

You said, ‘Yes’. You set the date. Then 2020 got in the way. With the year throwing wedding plans into a spin, you may have looked to downsize or to put things off until 2021. Whatever your situation, there are still a few ways to add some spirit to your special day—and to really make it yours.

Guided by our belief that spirits are best shared, our Tailored Wedding Experiences give you and your significant other the freedom to choose from a range of personalised offerings, from bespoke cocktail menus and Tailored Spirits to premium cocktail catering crafted by you in partnership with our Creative Drinks Director. All you need to do is choose the location: our award-winning Bar & Cellar Door in Rosebery, Sydney or any venue of your choice, countrywide.

Tailored Spirits

Your wedding is one-of-a-kind, so your drinks should be too. Add a spirited touch to your special day, with a bespoke gin or vodka tailored to your tastes. Simply choose your favourite botanicals, like bright pink peppercorn, floral strawberry gum or native lemon myrtle. Then top it off with a personalised label, featuring the newlywed’s names and a special message to commemorate the day.

Whether it’s for wedding favours, bridal parties, customised thank you gifts or to keep the drinks flowing all night, Tailored Spirits never fail to light up the room. We offer personalisation of each Tailored Spirits label so you can change the name and message on each individual bottle, making it a truly unique thank you gift for your guests. The Archie Rose Tailored Spirits range are available in 200ml and 700ml sizes.

Contact nina@archierose.com.au to discuss how we can create a Tailored Spirit for your special day.

Cocktail Catering

A Negroni with a twist or the cocktail from your first date. A glittering Golden Gimlet topped with flowers to match from your wedding bouquet. Our Cocktail Catering packages are all about putting your own stamp on your wedding’s cocktail hour. Work with our events team to find the perfect package for you, then leave it to our experienced bartenders to craft cocktails with flavours matched to the menu or theme of your wedding day.

Bespoke Spritz Bar

Make your celebrations unforgettable with an Archie Rose Spritz Bar personalised to you and your guests. Craft your very own gin or vodka spritz by choosing from a range of flavours including blueberry, watermelon or elderflower. Top it all off with sparkling wine or soda and select a personalised garnish such as lemon, lime, cucumber slice or mint.

On the day, our award-winning bartenders will guide each guest through the selection process, ensuring your garnish fits the flavour profile selected, so everyone will have a delicious Spritz in hand of their very own creation.

Whisky Bar

A very special kind of night cap. If you’re looking for a bespoke offering that will leave guests talking long after the night is through, the Archie Rose Whisky Bar is the perfect way to round off the evening. Our whisky experts will guide guests through a range of highly-awarded whiskies that have helped put Australia on the map. Whether you are a long-term whisky lover or a beginner, this is an experience not to be missed.

Want to take it a little further? We invite you to create a Tailored Whisky cask of your dream whisky to enjoy at a later date or for a special anniversary. From base grain and malt, cask type and cask size to smoke level and bottling strength, the specifications are yours to select. Leave our distillers to do the rest—they’ll get to work to produce your very own whisky from scratch in our distillery.

Martini Bar

No black-tie event is complete without a Martini, so why not compliment your newfound nuptials with the Archie Rose Bespoke Martini bar, serviced by our team of bartenders with a range of classic and new Martini variations.
