IT'S TIME FOR RUM TO GROW UP
We salute rum’s dark history, but we strive for its bright future. It's much more than a proud rediscovery of Sydney’s adventurous, free-booting heritage where rum was the spirit of choice and the fuel of rebellion. It’s about educating a new, more discerning audience to appreciate the qualities and subtleties of one of the world’s great spirits.
Founded in 2017 by Damien Barrow, James Christopher, and Sid Soin, these rum-loving mates could see that rum in Australia wasn't being reflected in the right light, so they set out for change.
Hand-crafted through small batch production, we're proud to say that we use no artificial flavours, colours or added sugars, just the highest quality ingredients, native or locally sourced wherever possible to create well-rounded & complex flavours.
OUR HYBRID STILL
Isn't she a beauty?! Molly is an Australian made, 1800L copper pot still with a hybrid 5-plate column. She was custom made in Ballarat to produce the unique Brix flavour profile, rich aromatics, and deep complexities. Molly helps us to make the type of spirit we want, and she allows us to make two types of spirit in one still. This includes light and heavy styles. She deserves a round of applause. What a legend.
Our Head Distiller Shane Casey hails from the Hawksbury in Sydney’s West. Shane was set to continue the family business as a third-generation boilermaker, but lucky for us, his passion for spirits, engineering and backyard brewing got in the way and lured him to the dark side.
If he looks familiar, you may have seen him with his head in a tank at Batch Brewing or Archie Rose. Wanting to focus on his spirit of choice, rum, Shane jumped at the opportunity after meeting the boys from Brix, realizing their shared love of a quality dram.
KEEPING IT LOCAL
We have a fantastic barrel library sourced from the best wine regions across Australia including the Hunter Valley, Barossa, and the Yarra Valley. The first qualifier for our barrels is that they have previously been filled with an Australian liquid, whether that's wine, beer or sprits.
This not only gives us great Australian made alcohol to draw from, but it allows for upcycling, recycling and supports the oversupply of barrels. It's a sustainable practice, but it also contributes heavily to our unique Brix flavour as the previous liquid's flavour permeates through our rum's DNA.
