World’s Best Rye Whisky - World Whiskies Awards 2020

To create this truly unique whisky, we selectively sourced rare malted rye and the finest malted barley from progressive malt houses, paired them with virgin American oak casks air-dried for 36 months and let it all mature in the maritime air of coastal Sydney.

Our preference for malted rye over the far more commonly used unmalted rye affords this whisky a point of distinction evident upon the very first sip. This layered, aromatic spirit offers notes of spiced custard, ginger, stone fruit and baked apple pie with a fresh herbal finish that lingers on the palate. We invite you to enjoy our Rye Malt Whisky in the spirit it was created: to be savoured in good company and served the way you like.

Martin Eber, Time for Whisky - “Just incredible elegance and complexity from a first release, rye-based spirit.”

Franz Scheurer, Australian Gourmet Pages and Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine - “Layered and complex and a pure joy to drink. The best bloody rye whisky in today’s world.”

Nick, Whisky Waffle - This whisky has “turned the page, it’s begun a new paragraph and inserted a new heading in bold, with underline and italics. This is a whole new chapter in the Australian whisky story.

An award-winning rye malt whisky, this proudly Australian release offers a drinking experience unfound anywhere else.

    • What pairs well with this whisky?

      Down

      Rich, fatty dishes are perfect for pairing with Archie Rose Rye Malt Whisky. We would also recommend bitter food pairings for whiskies such as strong cheese and dark chocolate to compliment the taste of whisky and rye.

    • What casks/wood are used for distilling?

      Down

      To achieve an optimum result, we chose to use Virgin American oak casks that have been air-dried for 36 months as we age our Rye Malt Whisky.

    • How is Rye different from Whisky?

      The term whisky is used to refer to the whole category of liquor, whereas rye whisky is one of many varieties. Rye malt is also used as the main grain in rye whisky. Therefore our proudly Australian Rye Whisky is in fact a Rye Malt Whisky.

      Archie Rose Rye Malt Whisky is best enjoyed served neat, with ice or however you would like. Alternatively, try it in a rye whisky cocktail. For more inspiration, head to our whisky cocktails page.
