Your Chance To Design The World's Most Beautiful Bar Cart

In the spirit of innovation, we’re offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to design the world’s most beautiful bar cart – one that transports you to the Archie Rose Bar, without leaving the comfort of your own home.

What’s in a bar cart? Our Head of Hospitality, Harriet Leigh, describes it as ‘a thing of beauty and wonder’, a place of sanctuary designed to house your carefully curated glassware and spirits collection in all its glory. As the old adage goes, the bar cart maketh the room. This is your chance to be a part of Archie Rose history – to design our first ever bar cart – one that does justice to Australia’s rich tradition of distilling as well as our commitment to innovation, using traditional methods with a decidedly progressive, new-age approach.

This is a challenge of function and design. Any bar cart can hold glassware. An exceptional bar cart considers how to store and drain ice, provides a hideaway space for napkins, garnishes and a trusty recipe booklet, along with a chopping board and knife. Your designs should speak honestly to the Archie Rose brand, including elements of copper, oak or locally sourced timber in line with the design of the Archie Rose Bar. Your creation must have four wheels and fit in a standard-sized living room, including space for five Archie Rose core range spirits, up to three modifiers (say, vermouth, bitters or liqueur) and six glasses, an Archie Rose copper barware set and the all-important space to make drinks. Check out the full T&Cs here.

The winner will see their design come to life as we work with production experts to craft a bar cart based on the winning entry. You’ll also get 5% of the sales of the first batch of bar carts, your very own cart and a bottle of every spirit in our Core Range to fill it with, including Signature Dry Gin, Distiller’s Strength Gin, Original Vodka, White Rye and Rye Malt Whisky.

To enter, begin by registering your entry and then completing in follow up drawings, sketches and renders as well as a 200-word description that summarises your design and outlines your vision for how the bar cart will enhance the at home cocktail making and drinking experience. Entries must be submitted via emailing your entry form and design to designabarcart@archierose.com.au by 11.59pm 7 October 2019.

The winner of the Archie Rose Bar Cart Competition will receive: - 1 x Bar Cart of their own design produced from the first batch (valued at RRP $3,000).

  • 5% of sales from the sale of the first batch of bar carts.

  • 1 x bottle of every core range Archie Rose spirit including: Signature Dry Gin, Distiller’s Strength Gin, Original Vodka, White Rye and Rye Malt Whisky (valued at RRP $465).

Entries are open now. What are you waiting for? Register your details and finalise your entry prior to 11.59pm, 7 October. Good Luck!
