It's an icon of Sydney, a place where locals and visitors alike come to mingle and share stories, where they come to create and collaborate and which has inspired countless pilgrims.
We are, of course, talking about Archie Rose, the Roseberry-based distillery that in its short life has quickly become one of the country's best-known and best-loved distilleries.
In a very exciting collaboration, the team have partnered with the Sydney Opera House, which could arguably also apply to some of the statements made in the first sentence above, to create a pair of gins. Welcome Archie Rose X Opera House Inside Gin and Outside Gin.
The former celebrates collaboration and innovation, resulting in a fruit-driven, naturally sweeter gin, while the Outer gin pays homage to the Opera House's famous sails, exposed as they are to Sydney's unique coastal elements.
Now available through The Oak Barrel separately and in a two-pack box.
