Brix Distillers

Born out of a love for rum

After discovering that rum in Australia was not being reflected in the right light, we have set out for change. The Brix vision is to share our passion and adventures with Australia and the world.

In 2017, we set out to find a site where we could establish an urban distillery that showcased the best that Australia has to offer. We challenged ourselves to source the best quality Australian molasses, fresh organic sugar cane, an Australian made copper still, the best quality native spices, and Australian wine barrels from some of the best wine making regions of the world.

Our goal is ​to combine these amazing ingredients to create a unique Aussie rum. A rum that can be enjoyed in the bars of Australia and in our own backyards.

Sarah Maclennan Jul 2022

Cocktail Class



The teacher was great, very clear and spoke to people well with a little humour as well which was nice. All materials provided. Clear and complete instructions given in class. The only issue I noticed was that some of the other patrons drinking in the bar were were a bit loud which made it a little hard to hear the teacher sometimes but this is not the teacher’s fault and is to be expected in any bar/ pub. Overall a great course. It was nice to sit, talk, drink and eat charcuterie provided during and after the class as well. I very much enjoyed  + more


Alyssa Griffin Jul 2022

Cocktail Class



Overall the class was good and teacher was knowledgeable and helpful. Unfortunately there's no control the teacher can have over rowdy class-goers though - this is probably common in cocktail making classes but it is not an ideal environment for a date night or if you're looking for a more intimate experience.


Bartosz Curyk Jul 2022

Cocktail Class



- perfect for small groups - ideal for kind of entry level for cocktails making/design - quite small/compact but with soul - Tahlia is the best teacher, she explains everything with fun and details/history about the process, tool or ingredients - cocktails during classes are not the boring, common one - very tasty and different - muay thai and zombie - very nice and rich antipasto platter - staff  + more

Rum Spicing Masterclass



Great location for a spice class. It was great being in the place where the whole process starts to where you end up with rum. The instruction was definitely knowledgable and very passionate about the whole process. It showed when he was giving us the walk through of how you get good rum. The class itself was quite fun and really open to how adventurous you want to be.

Ollie/Olly (?) was an amazing host despite being a stand in. He was engaging, very knowledgeable and an absolute beast with his espresso martini presentation. The venue itself and layout of Brix Distillers was also impressive and very aesthetically pleasing. The class and what was included in the package was more than worth it. Three drinks, a charcuterie board and hands on experience for $85/pp?  + more

The class was very informative and you learn how to make the two most ordered cocktails. You make the first cocktail, they feed you, and then you make the second one, and they feed you again! The food was good too (tacos, chips, grilled corn etc.). Definitely a good present for someone that loves their cocktails, or just want to learn the basics on how to make them.
