The Ducks x Brix Distillers 'Trail Mix'
Based just down the road from the Ducks in Rosebery, Brix Distillers are made up of a bunch of legends who want to change the way we think about fermentation, and the ingredients that can be used to create interesting, limited release spirits.
Over the past 12 months, James and Shane from Brix have been working in collaboration with our Beverage Manager, Mem Hemmings and the boys’, to create this year’s ‘Trail Mix’ rum release.
Beginning with Brix Shiraz Barrel Aged Rum, distilled from local molasses & aged in Surry Hills, we infused ginger from The Ducks’ farm in Byron Bay, cumquats from their Rosebery urban garden, honey from the beehive at their Bronte café, along with coffee grounds & orange peel, which are bi-products from their bars & kitchens around Australia.
The addition of native riberry & Kakadu Plum, as well as Aussie grown mango & vanilla add balance, roundness & body resulting in a delicious Spiced Rum, perfect for sipping, food pairing & cocktails.
The 2021 Trail Mix rum is now available on our beverage list at all 5 Ducks locations, in our produce stores, Brix Distillers in Surry Hills and on the Brix online store.
