Rum, rascals and revelations - the spirit of early Sydney

Brix Distillers

Brix Distillers, 350 Bourke St, Surry Hills NSW 2010, Australia

Thursday 27 June from 6pm to 8:30pm

​History and drinking have always gone hand-in-hand in Sydney.

While some convicts brewed beer in secret, their jailers rolled in rum by the shipload: with 65,000 litres arriving on the First Fleet alone. In the fledgling convict colony New South Wales, it wasn’t long before hard liquor became standard currency and no good story started without it.

This event will bring to life our rum-infused heritage of robberies, escapes, rebellions, murders, rum-runners, street gangs and sly-groggers as we sample the true spirit of Sydney in style.​

Settle in for an evening of debauchery and craft Rum drinks as Sydney Crime Historian Max Burns-McRuvie takes you on a full-sensory journey of tastes and tales.

Included in each ticket:

  • welcome drink

  • Brix Rum Flight

  • charcuterie board from the Brix Kitchen

​An evening exploring Sydney's debaucherous Rum-infused history led by Sydney Crime Historian, Max Burns-McRuvie.
