An intense smoked gin featuring ironbark smoked water, juniper, native thyme, wattleseed, caraway and a small amount of distilled chocolate malt this is the second release under the Archie Rose Concepts label, reserved for our rarest and most experimental releases.

This gin is a result of the R&D phase of our Summer Gin Project creating Bush and Coast Gins which saw our Master Distiller Dave Withers experiment with melting huge hunks of ice into water using sustainably sourced NSW ironbark next door in the wood-fired oven of Three Blue Ducks, Rosebery. Just like our Bush Gin Smoked Gin brings to life the character of our most challenging yet iconic season serving as a bookend to our Summer Gin series.

Tasting Notes


Reminiscent of campfires in the bush with pronounced eucalypt and tea tree punctuating notes of white smoke, cinders, roasted meat and damper bread. Evolving and engaging with assertive juniper. A woody structure reveals fruity accents.


Bold and intense with strong herbal elements against the backdrop of cocoa powder.


Fresh wood smoke sits alongside milk chocolate, pine and blue gum.

Production Notes

Botanicals Sourced

A gin is only as good as its ingredients. By working closely with providores and embracing experimental techniques, an emphasis could be placed on local ingredients which speak of their uniquely Australian provenance.
