Archie Rose Gift Guide 2022

Christmas! It comes around so fast! Wrangling the perfect gift for friends, family and those close to you can be tricky, but that feeling of seeing someone light up when they open a gift they really love can’t be matched, so it’s worth doing the research to get it right. From très chic glassware from our friends at Maison Balzac, to personalised gin, vodka and bottled cocktails in collaboration with a star Sydney bar - we’ve got you covered with gifts from $59. Allow us to make some suggestions…

Buying For: The Très Chic Drinker

Maison Balzac Pomponette Coupe or Gobelet + Archie Rose Spirit Set From $119

Maison Balzac’s glassware is as playful as it is premium, and we don’t know anyone who wouldn’t love sipping a cocktail out of one of these colourful hand-blown coupes or gobelets, adorned with tiny glass pompoms. Match it with a spirit of your choice to complete the perfect gift.

Buying For: The Creative at Heart

Tailored Gin, Vodka & Bottled Cocktails with limited-edition artwork from Edith Rewa $99

For the special friend who loves flowers AND crafted spirits (a great friend to have, indeed), we’ve collaborated with Australian-based illustrator and textile designer Edith Rewa to create a celebratory Christmas Tailored label, a gift box, a new limited edition canvas bag and more! Choose from Gin, Vodka or our Bottled Cocktails for a very special, personalised gift.

Buying For: The Perfectionist

Blend Your Own Gin, Whisky or Cocktail Class Gift Ticket From $99

You probably already know you can buy gift certificates for the Archie Rose shop, but now you can make someone’s day via an experience gift ticket. This allows them to choose a date and time that suits them to book in to blend their own gin, whisky or whip up cocktails like a master.

Buying For: The Martini Perfectionist

Archie Rose Gin Gift Set From $139

No matter their gin preference, our Gin Gift Set, complete with copper two piece cocktail shaker, jar of excellent Mount Zero Green Martini Olives, and bottle of local Maidenii Dry Vermouth brings together all the tools to nail the classic Martini. Choose from a bottle of Archie Rose Signature Dry Gin or Bone Dry Gin to make it even more tailored to how they like their drink.

Buying For: Your Always-Talking-About-Whisky Mate

Archie Rose Whisky Gift Set $149

An excellent whisky deserves an exceptional glass, and in this set there are two etched Glencairn glasses to allow the aromas and flavours of our Rye Malt to truly shine. Throw in a bottle of Mount Zero Olives and a jar of handmade, warmly spiced Cornersmith Red Tomato Relish and you’ve got all the fixings of a great afternoon.

Buying For: The Friend Who's Always Hosting

Bar Planet Bottled Cocktails: Cherry Daisy or Sunshine Martini $69

Parties are fun, but parties where you don’t have to do any active work are even better! Enter the bottled cocktail. Made in collaboration with Sydney’s Bar Planet, these two instant classics make the perfect Christmas gift, even better if they’re shared with you!
