Bundaberg Rum Distillery, Bundaberg

4.5
A low-slung complex on the banks of the Burnett River, Bundaberg Rum Distillery serves as the home and main administrative center for Queensland’s best-known rum. Bundaberg Rum was first produced in 1888--the company appointed its first tour guide in 1986--and has grown to become one of Australia’s most famous spirits. At the distillery, you can sample some of the company’s products, as well as gain insight into the distillation process through video presentations, tours, and historical displays.

    I booked the distillery tour a while in advance as a Christmas present and I'm so glad we did. We attended on a weekday so it wasn't as busy as it probably is over the weekend. When we arrived you're allowed to go through the museum at your own pace before a tour guide comes to get you. I believe our tour guide was called Scott and he was amazing. Made the whole experience 10x better. We toured the full distillery getting loads of information about the processes used and about the history of the rum and the distillery. You're then taken through to the bar/gift shop where you can sample two full sized drinks each (all of which were incredible) and then you have as much time as you like to look around the shop. We purchased two bottles and found them reasonably priced. There is also an outside seating area and the option for you to purchase more drinks should you wish. I would definitely recommend the experience to anyone even if you think it might not be your cup of tea.
