Meet our latest joyful and experimental limited release, ArchieMite Buttered Toast Spirit.
Inspired by Australia’s love for umami-rich breakfast spreads we’ve created an unaged spirit like no other featuring freshly churned, uncultured Pepe Saya butter and Sonoma sourdough toast.
This unaged spirit has a big, mitey character at the front followed by biscuity, bready notes. On the palate you’re given a combination of all three elements coming together - buttery, almost warm, crisp-edged toast with that umami-rich, savoury mite flavour.
Artisanal white sourdough toast still warm from the toaster with luxurious freshly churned butter and a generous spread of your favourite ‘mites’. Pure Australiana.
Soft and round with a creamy mouthful. Showing restraint yet highlighting this iconic combination of ‘mites’, butter and toast.
Evolving with each of the core components arriving separately.
Our restless nature combined with an insatiable curiosity led to the bold move of distilling a selection of mites, butter and toast. What started as joke became the hunt for an iconic Australian experience.
