Bundaberg Rum Solera has been crowned Australia’s best rum at the Tasting Australia Spirit Awards.
With its rich flavour Bundaberg Rum Solera is crafted through a complex process to create a well-balanced premium spirit.
It has been awarded many accolades since it was first launched in 2015.
Bundaberg Rum Distillery Marketing Manager Duncan Littler said he believed Bundaberg Rum Solera was named Australia’s best rum because of its intricate flavours.
“Solera is an outstanding premium rum with great complexity, it is expressive, has appealing intensity and is complemented by an extended and enjoyable finish,” Duncan said.
“We are absolutely thrilled that Bundaberg Rum Solera has been awarded the accolade of Best Rum at the Tasting Australia Spirit Awards in 2022, and also very proud that this premium rum has previously been crowned the World’s Best Dark Rum at the World Rum Awards in London.
“Clearly it is not only Australian rum fans who think this is an incredible drop.
“It is great to see that rum fans from around the world also believe that some of the world’s great dark rum is made here in Bundaberg.”
This year’s Tasting Australia Spirit Awards attracted 328 spirits from 77 distillers across the nation, which was the highest number of entries and distillers to the awards since inception.
Bundaberg Rum Solera well-balanced drink
Duncan said he was proud of the achievement, and Bundaberg Rum Solera was the perfect drop for a number of reasons.
“The delicate flavour notes in Solera are not only delicious and well balanced, but something I love about this rum is that it really showcases the exceptional and highly crafted process that has been utilised to develop this outstanding liquid,” he said.
“Bundaberg Rum Solera has been crafted via a fractional blending and maturation process using rich port, sweet sherry and full-bodied bourbon barrels.
“This complex process enables us to create a complex, yet incredibly well-balanced premium rum that tastes incredible neat or over a little ice.”
In addition to bringing home the top rum accolade for Bundaberg Rum Solera, the team at Bundaberg Rum were also very proud to have been awarded medals at the Tasting Australia Spirit Awards for Bundaberg Rum Blender’s Edition, Small Batch Silver Reserve and Small Batch Spiced.
It follows on from the recently-launched Bundaberg Alcoholic Lemon Lime and Bitters.
