Bundaberg Rum Distillery to re-open visitor experience

Bundaberg Rum re-opening visitor experience from 24 August.
Bundaberg Rum is reopening its visitor experience from Monday, 24 August.

The Bundaberg Rum Distillery is set to reopen its world famous and highly awarded visitor experience from Monday, 24 August.

Guests will again be able to visit the home of the iconic Bundy Bear as coronavirus restrictions continue to ease.

The Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience will resume its iconic distillery tour, with phone and online pre-bookings now open.

In line with current Queensland Government directives, visitor tours will have limited capacity, with a maximum of 20 guests allowed on each distillery experience tour.

Visitors are encouraged to attend with friends, family and loved ones, and take a journey deep into the heart of the working distillery.

The Bundy Distillery Guides will showcase the five million litre-capacity molasses well, and share some of the secrets behind fermenting, distilling and maturing Australia’s favourite locally made spirit, before inviting guests to sample any of the top shelf rums in the range.

Bundaberg Rum marketing and experience manager Duncan Littler said it's great to welcome back visitors.

“We’re thrilled to be able to share our world-class rum with our guests at Bundaberg Rum’s iconic home, particularly in a year that we have again been recognised at the Australian Tourism Awards as Best Distillery Experience,” he said.

“The health and safety of our staff and guests is of our utmost concern, so visitors can be reassured we’ll be taking all the necessary measures needed to ensure they can enjoy their experience with family and friends as well as our award-winning rum in a safe environment. We look forward to seeing you.”

The Bundaberg Rum Distillery saw won gold as Best Distillery for the second year running at the Australian Tourism Awards in March, and was the only distillery recognised in the 2019 awards.

The consistent wins have firmly established the Bundaberg Rum Distillery as Australia’s most awarded rum distillery, and a must-see tourist attraction.

Pre-bookings for the Bundaberg Rum Distillery Experience are strongly advised, as tour capacity is limited.
