For the third year running Bundaberg Rum has won big at the prestigious 2022 International Spirits Challenge, taking home a slew of gold awards.
The event, held on Tuesday 12 July, saw Bundaberg Rum continue their strong presence at the ISC with an impressive Double Gold Award for its Distillery Visitor Centre and Gold Award for its Distillery Tour.
The company has built a strong presence at the challenge, with previous trophy wins in 2020 and 2021.
At this year's competition Bundaberg Rum was also recognised in the Distillery Tour category for its ‘Blend Your Own Rum’ experience, allowing visitors to meet with expert guides and blend their very own rum liquid direct from the barrel.
The new International Spirits Awards join Bundaberg Rum’s ever-expanding trophy cabinet that is already home to more than 250 domestic and international accolades for its rum and tourism experiences, cementing its status as Australia’s most-awarded rum distillery.
Marketing and Experience Manager Duncan Littler said to be continually recognised at an international level made him incredibly proud to be part of Bundaberg Rum.
“Each year, the team work tirelessly to deliver an experience unlike anything else in the world and without fail continue to delight and surprise global visitors with a Distillery Experience that is truly world-class,” he said.
“For this to be recognised internationally by an award of this scale is testament to the unrivalled dedication and commitment of the Bundy Rum team.
“To earn Double Gold Awards in the Visitor Centre and Tour categories for the past three years is a fantastic achievement, and each award feels more special than the last.”
