The results are in and we’re excited to announce that Archie Rose Single Malt Whisky has taken out the top spot in our inaugural Bartender Magazine Hottest 100 Aussie Spirits Countdown.
This multi-award winning gin from the team at Archie Rose Distilling recently moved to new digs in Botany and Banksmeadow, 4km south of Archie Rose’s original home in Rosebery. The site is one of the most innovative distilleries in the world, designed and constructed from the ground up by founder, Will Edwards, and Master Distiller, Dave Withers. This highly anticipated release of their Single Malt Whisky has won lots of awards and been so popular that it literally flew off the shelves.
Here’s what the team have to say about their Archie Rose Single Malt Whisky: “It is distinctly crafted to highlight six malts, as opposed to the typical one or two used in most whiskies, each with a unique profile and character. This six-malt mash bill, although incredibly low yielding, provides a significantly richer and more expressive flavour, full of distinct regional character.”
So how did we get to this Top 10? Earlier this year we put out the call for distilleries to nominate their brands. Then we got you guys to vote. We had 8000 votes roll in and we announced the top 100 live on Facebook at 6pm live from Piccolo Bar in Kings Cross.
