Archie Rose Distilling Co. has launched an Australian Double Malt Whisky as the third release in its Fundamental Spirits range, crafted from a blend of the rye and barley malts that underpin Archie Rose Single Malt Whisky (eight-time winner of Australia’s Best Single Malt) and Rye Malt Whisky (four-time winner of World’s Best Rye).

Each batch is made at the Archie Rose Distilling in Botany, Sydney using a solera system, where, over time, the rye and barely whiskies are married together to create Double Malt Whisky – a delicious more approachable new style of local whisky that gives people the opportunity to switch to a 100% Australian-made malt whisky instead of blended Scotch, bourbon or rye whiskies.

The new release has hints of apricot jam on toasted rye bread, along with the flavour of roasted nuts and honeyed chocolate notes on the finish. As part of the Fundamental Spirits range, Double Malt Whisky is bold enough to stand up in your favourite mixed drinks and cocktails, but complex and smooth enough to sip on its own.
