2021 harvest LIMITED RELEASE 

australian sugarcane crushed, fermented & distilled in surry Hills indigenous yeasts

It’s a hard slog crushing sugar cane in the city. After a hard year of lockdowns and transport restrictions, we were limited in how much fresh sugarcane we could source from our cane farmer in southern Queensland.
 

From the 2021 October harvest, we were able to transport 2 tonnes of cane, resulting in a very limited batch of spirit. It was crushed, stalk by stalk, wild fermented over 2 weeks of a mild Sydney spring season & double pot distilled.
 

2021 Harvest opens with floral saffron & honey aromas followed by stonefruit & apple notes. The tropical palate of mango & coconut yoghurt shine through with a lingering finish of fennel & freshly cut grass.
 

Simply enjoyed over ice with a squeeze of lime, shake up the perfect daiquiri, or splash it with crushed sugar cane juice (if you can get it fresh enough). Urban Cane is a step away from our usual processes, but this spirit truly represents the agricultural land from which we have sourced our cane.

 

A true reflection of the city meeting our country.

LABEL ART BY JESWRI

We love celebrating local talent, so  each of the Brix limited release labels features the work of an Aussie artist. For our Urban Cane 2021 Harvest we commissioned Melbourne artist and Honey Bones Gallery owner, Jeswri. 

 

We asked him to create a piece of art that reflected the agricultural nature of Urban Cane while showcasing a few of the flavours you'll taste in the 2021 harvest. 

We're stoked with what he created. Thanks Jeswri!
