Looking for fun things to do in Sydney? Join us for our next Rum School class at Brix Distillers and learn how to mix cocktails like a pro!

Every Saturday we host two sessions and change up the cocktails each week to keep returning guests on their toes. Think Spiced Rum Espresso Martinis, Mai Tais, Zombies, and Pina Coladas – yum!

You’ll be greeted with a refreshing Brix Spritz or mocktail before embarking on a behind-the-scenes tour of our Surry Hills distillery. Our guided tours are a full sensory experience that takes you on a deep dive into all stages of the rum-making process.

After you’ve learnt how Brix Distillers spirits are made, you'll head over to the bar and learn how to mix and shake them into delicious tropical cocktails. A friendly and talented mixologist will guide you step-by-step through creating two different rum-based cocktails.

Kick back and relax as you enjoy the tropical fruits of your labour! Bond with like-minded people and nibble on a delicious Brix antipasto platter including a great selection of tasty cheeses, cured meats, vegetables, bread, dips, fruits and nuts.

If you're looking for unique date night ideas, treat your partner to a night out in Surry Hills at this cocktail making class and distillery tour - it's one of the best things to do in Sydney!

Born out of a love for rum

4.9 (84)

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.

It was a beautiful experience and the cocktails were really exciting. Our teacher was experienced plus very engaging. He gave us a great walkthrough of the rum making process in distillery. Our dietary requirements were well taken care of, lovely arrangement of cheese platter.
I would highly recommend this class.

Class cocktail tutor was awesome. You get the background off the history of rum and the cocktails themselves. Then u get to create your own and enjoy. They have a massive list of classics and inhouse cocktails that are amazing what's not to love. Definitely give it a try.

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? I’ll be back with more friends.

Excellent expérience. Fun activity - tour of the distillery and making 2 cocktails, with a very generous tasting plate in between, made after they asked re dietary requirements. Very thoughtful, friendly and enjoyable.

Jessica Pham Jan 2022

Wonderful and insightful teacher! Ollie's passion for rum is clear but what was the highlight was his willingness to go around and hear other people's opinions on the class, answer any questions and make the class fun.

Jesse Jones Jan 2022

Absolutely fantastic class leader who took the time to describe in detail to us the production of the rum, as well as some excellent cocktail recipes to use the rum in. Staff were very welcoming and friendly and we would definitely take this class again.
