This carefully crafted Dry Gin uses fourteen traditional and native botanicals, each uniquely infused and individually distilled in a 300L handmade copper pot still. Perfectly balanced and wonderfully complex, Archie Rose Signature Dry Gin is accented by native Australian botanicals, including blood lime, dorrigo pepperleaf, lemon myrtle and river mint. All underpinned with pronounced juniper berry.
While there were challenges to the complete lack of a handbook to guide Archie Rose to create a distillery of their size, the upside is that they learned from the ground up the craft of spirit making from people who have done it before them. They say good things come to those who wait. In their case, the wait for their distilling equipment to be built was exactly one year to the day they engaged craftsman Peter Bailly to create it. With the finest copper shipped in from Scandinavia then hand-hammered and fabricated to their exact specifications, they are proud to say Archie Rose has three of the most unique copper pot stills in the world.

With the exception of the washbacks and grist mill, Peter made all other equipment on the production floor, so it’s fair to say they have a grassroots culture of creating things by hand – right through to the bottling and labelling of their spirits on site.
