Milton Rum Distillery
An inner-city distillery surrounded by breweries.
August 25, 2020
Milton has been home to a giant brewery for decades. In recent years, a variety of small and independent beermakers have also set up shop in the inner west suburb. But, amidst all that yeast and hops — and the strong scent of both that lingers in the air — Milton boasts its own spirits outfit thanks to Milton Rum Distillery.
Obviously, rum is on the menu at this family-run operation. The distillery actually nods to an undersung part of the area's history, with the original rum-producing Milton Distillery springing into action way back in 1871. At this new joint, you can choose between Spanish-inspired tipples, a spiced cane spirit, and a coffee and cane spirit.
Milton Rum Distillery is colocated with Milton cocktail bar The Malecon, which — you guessed it — also heroes rum.
