The Best GYPSUM Distillery


Archetype was born from a passion for creating quality spirits and fostering a sense of community. Our Gypsum tasting room allows visitors to experience our delicately crafted cocktails and distillates, and our event space hosts beautiful weddings, corporate parties, and gatherings.

The entire distilling process for our two crystal clear spirits – Archangel Vodka and Archrival Gin – is housed in the Archetype building itself and is produced from the free-run juice of wine grapes. Experience the Archetype difference yourself, one drink at a time.


Our spirits are made from fresh-pressed grapes, not grains, unlike most other vodkas and gins. This gives our spirits a smooth, dry, and subtly sweet distinct taste. Every drop is made on-site using our custom Vendome copper stills and unique distilling process.
