Kicking off 2019 with a bang, Bundaberg Rum has just scooped three new awards for their distillery and Spirit of Bundaberg Festival.
The recent achievements have far outshone many international competitors, putting the Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience firmly on the map as ‘World’s Best’.
Already Australia’s most awarded rum distillery, the Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience picked up the award for The World’s Best Distillery Retail Experience and The World’s Best Distillery Event for the Spirit of Bundaberg Festival at the Drinks International Spirits & Distillery Tourism Challenge 2019.
The local distillery was also awarded gold and silver at the Queensland Tourism Awards 2018.
The latest awards mark the third year in a row that the distillery has scooped such prestigious titles from The Drinks International Challenge Series, which aim to recognise innovation and excellence amongst distilleries and associated businesses.
The accolades mean that the distillery will now be entered as a finalist representing Queensland at the Australian Tourism Awards in March.
Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience Operations and Brand Manager Duncan Littler said the recent influx of awards continued to establish the Visitor Experience as a bucket list tourist attraction for domestic and international travellers.
“These prestigious new awards help us to establish the Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience as a must do for tourists and locals alike,” he said.
“Our rum comes from humble roots but continues to be recognised on a global stage, and that truly is an exciting place to be.
With our Visitor Experience seeing double digit growth in 2018, and Blend Your Own Rum being a stand out for those wanting a uniquely personalised experience, we look forward to more visits and awards this year!”
