Archie Rose is a craft spirits distillery and bar based in Roseberry, Sydney. They make award-winning gin, vodka, limited release spirits, and recently, hand sanitiser – producing over 100,000 bottles from distillery wastage, delivering them to Australians, and providing employment to 27 workers during the COVID-19 crisis.
One of the country’s most awarded and loved distilleries, they’ll be joining The Happy Pack alongside a number of other brands, companies, and local businesses.
Sydney’s own Archie Rose Distilling Co. are one of the many brands jumping on board The Happy Pack: an initiative for artists in isolation.
The Happy Pack is an initiative involving organisations such as Panhead Custom Ales, Fender, RØDE, Thrills, Happy Mag, and more, aimed at offering a helping hand to creatives in this unexpected and altogether not so chill situation. It’s a box of gifts valued over $1200, delivered to the front doors of artists in isolation.
From Archie Rose, each Happy Pack will contain two tasty custom cocktails made from Archie Rose Original Vodka, cold drip coffee, and coconut.
Any creative who has lost work during the COVID-19 pandemic is eligible to receive a package, from musicians to photographers to illustrators. Initially deliveries will only be available to Sydney residents, with the mind to expand elsewhere in Australia during the coming months.
The Happy Pack doesn’t pretend to make up for any lost income, but it will give you something to look forward to, something to pass the time, and engage you with a community of like-minded creatives united by this crazy world order.
