Launched in March 2015, Archie Rose Distilling Co. is the first independent distillery and bar to open in the City of Sydney in over 160 years. The multi-awarded distillery creates a diverse range of whiskies, gins, vodkas, and rums, supplemented with one-off collaborations, limited releases, and spirits experiences at the distillery bar.
Best known for their innovative range of gins, standout examples include Archie Rose Signature Dry Gin 
featuring Australian native botanicals including lemon myrtle, blood lime, river mint, and Dorrigo pepper leaf –  uniquely created with all fourteen botanicals individually distilled utilizing one of three separate infusion points within a 300L copper pot still.

Recently a limited release gin was released as a homage to gin’s quintessential botanical – juniper. Bone Dry Gin showcases juniper’s raw power to deliver a bold taste with a bracingly dry finish. The limited-edition Bone Dry Gin is the first gin made in Archie Rose’s newly installed custom-specified copper vacuum stills. Selected botanicals selected in the distilling of the gin include Macedonian juniper, a hand foraged ingredient that is both cold and hot distilled to create three distinct expressions – plus single-estate Australian coriander seed, Tahitian lime, and lemon-scented gum.
