Inspired by one of Australia’s much-loved breakfast spreads, the liquor is highly experimental for the brand.
Created by using a combination of individually distilled ingredients such as Pepe Saya, Sonoma sourdough toast and selection of blended yeast-extract spreads (“mites”). They’ve managed to create a savoury, buttery unaged spirit.
ArchieMite Buttered Toast Spirit will be released on May 8 (mate) as a limited-edition product of only 3,000 bottles. Like the ‘mites’ it’s created from, it’s likely to be a rather divisive product.
“It’s lots of fun,” said Archie Rose’s Master Distiller, Dave Withers. “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.”
ArchieMite Buttered Toast Spirit will be available from May 8, 2019 at great bars, independent bottle shops and as always at the Archie Rose Bar and online at www.archierose.com.au/shop
