This whisky blending experience is offered by Archie Rose Distillery in the inner Sydney Suburb of Rosebery.?The Whisky Blending experience is great for everyone, from those not toofond of whisky to the connoisseur. The tour begins with mild formalities, the of signing a waiver which is needed as you are entering an operating distillery.?We then enter the distillery and are given a brief history of whisky and whisky in Australia. We then get onto the grain, an important part of making whisky and one of the many factors that influence flavour. Archie Rose prides itself on quality ingredients and especially grain, we taste a few different grains and have some flavour profiles explained.?From here we move onto the equipment and the whisky making process where the story of Archie Rose is explained. We are all full of information, then we are provided with a sample of their new make spirit, essentially grain based alcohol, that has spent under 2 years in a barrel. In Australia for this type of spirit to be called whisky it must spend 2 years aging in a wooden barrel.?From here we move to the upstairs section of the Archie Rose bar, where the area is pre set with lazy Susan's topped with 8 glencairns, which are whisky glasses, made especially for whisky and its appreciation. A glass for drinking whisky neat is straight up, with no ice or mixers. 7 of those glencairns contained a range of notable whiskies, all with different flavour profiles. Also on the table were 2 beakers, a dropper and 2 200ml bottles of Archie Rose whisky, as a base to blend with. We are also provided with a refreshing cocktail/palate cleanser made from Archie Rose new make and apple juice.?From here the fun begins, have a smell and a taste of the 7 different whiskies that will be used to blend with the Archie Rose whisky base. Create your own whisky blend by adding different whiskies to taste.
