Archie Rose Australian White Rye Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 50% Age: No Age Statement Country: Australia
The Archie Rose distillery was first established in 2015 by Will Edwards who had taken inspiration from visits in 2012 to distilleries in New York and Brooklyn. Gaining knowledge from local distilleries in Tasmania and from some of the pioneers of Australian distilling (Bill Lark, Peter Bignell to name a few) Edwards enlisted Peter Bailly (Australia’s only still maker at that time) to hand build three copper pot stills which were powered by gas and used steam to heat the wash.
The key in the Archie Rose success story is the appointment of Dave Withers, Master Distiller. This was Dave’s first role as head of distilling and he had a lot to prove to his critics on not only how well he could distill but how innovative he could be. Producing a new style Australian whisky that was one day going to empower the world is not a task taken lightly by Dave or Edwards for that matter. The partnership has proved a huge success and one that we will look back on in decades and we will remember how it changed the Australian distilling culture and whisky scene. First batches have been very well awarded in both local and international levels.
The Archie Rose White Rye was created by selecting rye from some of the finest local producers. Using a brewer’s yeast as well as a distiller’s yeast gives a lower yield, but a more pronounced flavour. “Innovation is very important for us and we often take inspiration from traditional techniques such as this but then apply modern techniques and know how to produce something quite special. Rye is a tough grain to use and causes many challenges in production, yet the quality and charisma of the spirit it yields speaks for itself,” says Master Distiller, Dave Withers.
