Sydney’s Archie Rose distillery has created a spirit that tastes just like your morning toast and it’s hitting shelves this week!

Sydney based Archie Rose is known for its incredible selection of unique spirits and now it’s adding another one to the list. ‘Archiemite’ is their latest creation, blending the flavours of butter and sourdough to perfectly capture the comfort of ‘buttered toast’ in every glass. Would you give it a try?

A Taste Sensation

Master distiller Dave Withers said that the limited edition flavour will be a polarising addition. “It’s lots of fun,” he said in a statement. “It sits in this weird but interesting place. Trying to describe how it tastes is like trying to describe the colour blue. If you like that savoury flavour of yeast-extract spreads, you’ll really enjoy it.” Dave believes that this is definitely a spirit you need to try for yourself as it will taste different to each person. To celebrate the launch of Archiemite, the distillery will be hosting a number of brunches each weekend until the beginning of June where guests can sample specially created cocktails and enjoy a menu inspired by the spirit.

Mix n’ Match

Archie Rose recommends adding Archiemite to your Expresso Martini or even a Bloody Mary for a little extra something. The new spirit is set to be available from May 8th online and in-store, and will see 25kg of freshly churned butter and 15kg of sourdough combined to create a limited range of just 3000 bottles.

If you fancy trying Archie’s latest taste sensation, you better get in quick! It sounds like the perfect winter-appropriate addition to your next cocktail.

Would you try Archie Rose’s ‘Archiemite’? Tell us in the comments!

  • No I think that has gone too far! I like Vegemite but I’d draw the line at that.


  • I’m not really into vegemite so don’t think I’d be a fan or game enough to try this!


  • I don’t like Vegemite, so I would be very cautious with the taste of this drink. Would be happy to taste it somewhere though as I love fresh sourdough bread with lots of butter.
    Where can we taste this concoction outside of Sydney?


  • Would love to try it, the flavour sounds so interesting. Not wanting to buy a bottle just to try it, and them be stuck with it if I don’t like it.


  • I’m not buying any. As they saying goes, I wouldn’t touch it with a 10 ft barge pole.
    None of us are alcohol lovers anyway


  • I don’t drink alcohol and I wouldn’t bother getting it for others to try. Where do they get their ideas from anyway


  • I’m not a big drink as it is, I wouldn’t go out and buy it just to try it

    • No me neither. Spirits are not cheap either, I would never buy a whole bottle just to maybe try one sip.


  • I would try it just to see what it tastes like,could be fantastic!


  • It doesn’t appeal to me I’m afraid.


  • I would so try this sounds great


  • No doesn’t appeal to me sorry


  • Does this mean you could drink it for breakfast ???? I will try anything once


  • I feel sick just thinking about this!


  • Not really. Thank you very much! :-)


  • Um… no! I like my toast as toast thanks.
