Bundaberg Rum has released a new limited-edition Coconut Reserve rum – the second flavour in its Small Batch Distillery Edition, with all the notes of a sun-drenched tropical island.
Coconut Reserve has been expertly crafted by filtering hand selected 16-year-old rum reserves through coconut shell charcoal to develop intriguing and sophisticated notes of chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar, and toasted coconut.
This one-of-a-kind rum is one of the distillery’s finest – perfect for enjoying neat, on the rocks, mixed with pineapple juice, or used in a Pina Colada.
Coconut Reserve is the second release from the Small Batch Distillery Edition series that was first released in November last year.
The series was created to mark the anniversary of the Distillery’s opening with Bundy celebrating its 133rd birthday this year, using new-aged flavour trends with old-age rums that have been mastered over hundreds of years.
Bundaberg Rum Distillery marketing and experience manager Duncan Littler said last year’s Small Batch Distillery Edition, Hidden Barrels, was internationally recognised for its bold and complex taste, winning gold at both the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2021 and the International Spirits Challenge 2021.
“Ahead of our 133rd birthday this year, our team is proud to be launching the new and unique Coconut Reserve blend created from some of the finest rums that the Distillery has tucked away,” he said.
“Straight off the back of our recent award wins, we’ve poured ourselves into making a refreshing tasting new flavour, blending experimental processes with our traditional artisanship to make a unique Bundy Rum.”
