Barrelhouse Cellars bar wine shop

Barrelhouse Group, renowned for its creations Hickson House, The Barber Shop, and The Duke of Clarence, takes great pleasure in introducing its latest venture, Barrelhouse Cellars. This exciting new addition to Sydney’s historical district nestles comfortably in its historic paved courtyard, offering a unique experience that includes individual tastings and themed flight offerings of Australian gins and New World whiskies.

Leading the operations of Barrelhouse Cellars is industry stalwart Nick Minogue, who plans to highlight craft producers with a strong Australian focus. The Cellars will feature a private wine collection and a specially-curated selection of spirits to pair with their award-winning Hickson Rd. Gins. As Nick states, “Whether you’re a local popping in on a weeknight, or a traveller seeking a memorable, local shopping experience, we’ll find you the perfect drop.”

To enhance the home-serving experience of its patrons, Barrelhouse Cellars also offers bottled cocktails from premier local bars, hand-cut ice, cocktail garnishes, and a range of artisanal cheeses, pates, and charcuterie. The team provides careful packaging for nationwide delivery, or same day in Sydney, via their online store at www.barrelhousecellars.com.

As co-founders Julian Train and Mikey Enright state, “The Cellars is the next stage of our longer-term vision for The Rocks. We wanted to create an accessible, inviting, local bottle shop; drawing on our hospitality experience to add a few features we couldn’t find elsewhere. The paved tasting courtyard is particularly special. Come down soon to grab a sip and a bottle.”
