Archie Rose Distilling Co.

Top choice bar in Newtown & the Inner West

This distillery has made quite an impact with its excellent gins – where better to try them than the place itself? The bar is appropriately industrial chic; the mezzanine is a great spot to sit and observe the action. Try different gins in a flight, or pick your perfect G&T combination or cocktail. It also has some decent wine and beer.

Tours of the distillery ($30 including a tasting) for over-18s run daily; book online. There are other places to eat around here too so you can make an event of it.
