Tailor your own gin with Archie Rose
This hands-on masterclass will let you learn all about gin, not only by drinking it (naturally) but also by blending in some botanical spirits, all with the help of Sydney-based boutique distillery, Archie Rose.
The class – which is a part of Taste of Melbourne – will let you get knee-deep in the craft spirit, its rich history and the process of making it. You'll work with eight pure distillates – including native lemon myrtle, juniper berries, blood lime, pepperbush and river mint – to customise your own signature recipe, with the help of Archie Rose’s neutral base. Plus, you'll get to take home your personalised spirit as a tasty souvenir that’ll surely be the star of your cocktail trolley.
Archie Rose have been creating craft gins along with vodka and whisky for the past few years, with many of their boutique spirits being used in some of Australia's best cocktail bars. This hands-on class is the perfect chance for Melburnians to acquaint themselves with the herbal craft spirit, while also learning more about their personal tastes and having a bit of fun.
Your ticket includes entry to Taste of Melbourne, a take-home Taste tumbler, an Archie Rose Distilling Co cocktail, a gin masterclass and a 200ml bottle of your own blended gin.
