Archie Rose together with renowned drinks writer and presenter Mike Bennie, are bringing the best of Sydney hospitality together for StickyBeak – an inaugural two-day festival of top shelf drinks, top-notch food, DJs and curated masterclasses.
To mark International Women’s Day 2022 we asked the Archie Rose team why they feel it’s critical that we continue working together to attract more women to a still under-represented distilling and spirits industry and to sustain and grow the fight for gender equality and diversity generally.
We all know thinking outside of the box is fast-track to fresh ideas, so when it was time to choose our new Tailored Spirits blends, we decided to break those four walls down and hand the reins over to three local interior designers.
Archie Rose has partnered with ActionAid to create Arise Gin. 10% of proceeds from this Tailored Gin will be donated to ActionAid’s Arise Fund, which provides rapid response funding to ensure women and their organisations are resourced when they need it most.

The National Gallery of Australia’s powerhouse exhibition Know My Name: Australian Women Artists 1900 To Now was due to launch in May, but 2020 had other plans.

With international travel off the cards for the foreseeable future, we wanted to turn our attention back to supporting small communities hit twice by the 2019-2020 bushfires and COVID-19. It’s all in the simple act of exploring (and spending money in) one’s own backyard.

Harriet Leigh sat down with SMWS Brand Ambassador Matt Bailey and Archie Rose Master Distiller Dave Withers to find out more about what brought these two bodies together. It turns out the answer was whisky.
