    Our Story

    Archie Rose Distilling Co. is a custom-designed boutique distillery and bar in Rosebery, Sydney just 5km south of the CBD. We opened our doors in 2015 to become the first multi-spirit distillery in Sydney in over 160 years. We are dedicated to honouring the city’s rich spirit-making past and hand craft spirits on site, including gin, vodka and whisky. Our distillery has been custom designed to give people a unique behind the scenes look at the distilling process from grain to glass. The Archie Rose Bar is located just three metres away from our distillery and has been created as a place where people gather to savour our gin, vodka and whisky in spirit flights and cocktails along with other exceptional products from around the world. Founded by Sydney-sider Will Edwards, the inspiration for Archie Rose came from the Tasmanian distilling industry and the urban distilleries of New York and London.

    • Our core range includes four products: Archie Rose Signature Dry Gin, Archie Rose Distiller's Strength Gin, Archie Rose Original Vodka and Archie Rose White Rye. Our aged whisky is currently maturing in French and American oak casks and we look forward to welcoming it to our lineup soon. We were honoured to win gold and silver at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition for our gin and white rye plus our Archie Rose packaging.

    Making our spirits

    At the heart of distilling our gin and vodka lies a range of botanicals including juniper berry, fresh apple, ginger root and coriander seed along with Australian native ingredients such as blood lime, river mint, lemon myrtle and Dorrigo pepperleaf.

    Making the Archie Rose Signature Dry Gin

    Our Signature Dry Gin is copper pot distilled with fourteen carefully selected botanicals, drawing equally on tradition and innovation. Rather than the conventional “one-shot” distillation whereby all botanicals are placed in the still at once, we painstakingly distil each botanical individually, in one of three separate infusion points.

    Packaging our Signature Dry Gin

    Our gin, vodka and white rye are bottled on site. When we first opened in 2015 we were also applying our labels by hand and we still hand write the critical batch information on every bottle.

    Enjoying and educating

    Precisely three metres from the distillery and flanked by a wall of aging whisky barrels, the bar showcases the full Archie Rose spirits range, including a number of unreleased products, while also offering an interesting selection of beers, wines and other spirits from around the world.
    We have two spaces – a ground floor area and a loft – and have used copper, steel, oak and concrete to create a completely unique space where you can sample, sip and savour the spirits we craft on site. Upstairs in the loft we conduct regular education sessions and masterclasses.
