Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world. When Sydney entrepreneur Will Edwards decided to quit his full-time corporate job, it was with the dream of opening the first distillery Sydney had seen since the 1850s. The result is Archie Rose Distilling Co. – tucked away in Rosebery, neighboured by Three Blue Ducks and Da Mario, and operating as a distillery, bar and ageing facility. The bar services as a place to sample Archie Rose’s in-house gins, whiskeys and vodkas, accompanied by an impressively curated selection of wines, beers and grazing plates for when hunger strikes. If interactive evenings are more your pace, the venue also offers gin and whiskey making classes, tours and tastings via their spirit ‘flights’. With its Brooklyn-style fit out and knowledgeable staff, Archie Rose is cut out for whatever your drinking and dining desires demand.
