At Brix Distillers, we believe it’s time for rum to grow up. We salute Rum’s dark history, but we strive for it’s bright future. We want to invite a new generation to share in our passion for a forgotten drink. We’re giving rum a new home in Surry Hills.

Your Own Brix Barrel
Personalised Brix barrels are available for individual purchase. We don't really think you need an excuse but in case you do, these barrels are perfect for a gift, special occasion or just because you like drinking premium craft rum.
How We Rum
Here in our custom built temperature controlled fermentation vessels is where the yeast consumes sugar to produce alcohol and flavour compounds ready for distillation in three days.
This is where we gently simmer the fermented solution to seperate alcohol by evaporation and recapturing it by cooling it in the condenser.
Clear spirit is introduced to the barrel where it spends the next few years of it's life gathering flavour and color before being removed as the golden brown spirit we lovingly know as rum.
Once the head distiller decides the Rum is fully matured, we decant the barrels and dilute the spirit down to drinking strength which is then bottled on site ready for consumption.
The three of us loved rum, but not what it stood for. Over a drink, we decided that it was time rum grew up.
Rum has a dark history but like Australia, we want to give it a bright future. We believe in redemption, we believe in taking responsibility for change, for doing something we love and doing it right. We believe that rum has a place in our bars and our backyards. LEt's bring molasses to the masses.
