SYDNEY | Brix Distillers is an independent Australian rum producer by owners Damien Barrow, James Christopher and Siddharth Soin, who turned what started as a passion project, into a distillery and bar in Surry Hills. The bar the best place in town to try Brix’s rum, which is made using locally sourced Australian ingredients, like Queensland sugar cane and molasses, and native Australian spices.
The space is modern and industrial, with polished concrete, clean lines, and pops of art and greenery to balance things out. Behind the bar, you’ll see the Australian-built 1200-litre copper still, and eight 1000-litre fermentation tanks.
Brix produce a variety of rums on site, including the three core range products – White, Gold & Spiced. The team at Brix are very passionate and knowledgeable, and are happy to talk you through the process of making each rum, flavour profiles, and tasting notes. Flights are available if you want to try a few different things, paired with different chocolates, or cheese and charcuterie, to bring out different flavours.
As well as Brix’s core range, you’ll also find limited barrel-aged releases, and over 150 rums from around the world. There’s a great selection of rum cocktails too. Food wise, it’s a simple one pager of burgers, BBQ ribs, and small bites like buttermilk fried chicken, and mac and cheese croquettes.
Each week, a selection of events and things like cocktail making classes and distillery tours are offered. And if you want some rum to take home, Brix also have an off-site license, with bottles of their rum for sale.
