Rum: Sydney’s Dark history & Tasting with Brix Distillers
This Event Is
Begin with a twilight tour of the Rum Hospital (today known as The Mint) with Sydney Living Museums staff and view up close special collection items that reveal the sometimes horrible history of Macquarie Street. Learn about malingering convicts, and the surgeons who provided flogged criminals with rudimentary medical treatments, or dissected those who were executed.
Following this tour you’ll welcome a stiff drink from Brix Distillers, who will provide an educational session on tasting straight spirits with three of their rum varieties. You’ll also learn about the history and evolution of rum in Australia, including the process of making rum and the ingredients and equipment used.
Alcohol and refreshments will be served at this event.
