Sweetness and Light: an evening of sugar and rum punch

Part of Australian Heritage Festival 2019

Join us for this evening event of Indian rum punch, Bengal sugar, and a candlelight tour of Elizabeth Farm. Part of the 2019 Heritage Festival, this event is bound to be a delight!

In the early decades of the colony, contacts with India were a key to the developing economy. 

Sugar, spices, textiles and Bengal rum were all vital imports – with rum even becoming a de facto currency. 

Join us by candlelight as we investigate Elizabeth Farm’s early contacts with India.

Then pound sugar in the kitchen, rasp lemons, and make and taste a Regency rum punch.
