Visit the Bundaberg Distillery

The Bundaberg Distilling Co. was born in 1888, when a band of ingenious Sugar Millers turned a horrendous Molasses surplus into fine Rum.

Fast-forward to 1986, when every day thousands of punters would arrive and pound on the distillery door, pleading to be let in for a look around. In response to this conundrum, we hired a strapping young man, gave him a whistle and a cap and made him a tour guide.

Today more than 85,000 humans visit the BDC Bondstore each year, and not a single one leaves disappointed. Some don't leave, they stick around and soak up the atmosphere of the Bundy Bar, sampling sweet rum at the source. Then they head over to the retail store, where they buy goods to take home, impress and make jealous their friends and family.

There are two tour options:

BDC Story Self Guided Tour - Touch panels and interactive visual displays bring over 125 years of crafting rum to life. You can make this tour as long or as short as you want.

BDC Distillery Experience Guided Tour - Your tour guide will lead you to the swirling wells of molasses, mysterious processes of fermentation and distillation, around to the grand Barrelhouse where you walk through an historic oak vat the size of a small house.

Adult guests aged 18 years and over (LPA+) are also invited to two samples in the Bundy Tasting Bar at the conclusion of the tour.

You can visit the retail store even if you do not go on a tour.

The BDC Distillery Experience Guided Tour

Many have likened The BDC Distillery Experience (AKA the 'Be shown around' tour) to an expedition into the Congo, it is a journey into the unknown. The tour begins in the past with The BDC Story, (AKA the 'Show yourself around' tour) then weaves its way to the dark, swirling wells of molasses. Then it's onto the mysterious processes of fermentation and distillation, around to the grand hall of historic oak vats the size of large houses. Grown men have been known to walk away from The BDC Distillery Experience shedding tears of enlightenment.
