Under the careful eye of Distillers, Blenders and Bondsman, millions of litres of rum is aged to perfection. This liquid gold matures quietly in red brick buildings known as "Bondstores".

One of these Bondstores has been retired and transformed into our immersive Distillery Museum Experience. Here you'll be greeted by a forest of 75,000 litre vats, that have been emptied allowing for you to walk through and explore the rich history of Bundaberg Rum.

Get to know our history in as little or as much detail as you like in this self-paced, self guided museum tour.

  • Explore in your own time – no time limit for you to enjoy this space (we estimate approximately 1 hour for this experience) Adults will receive two tastings from our top shelf range of Bundaberg Rums at the conclusion of the tour

    • 9.30am - 3.30pm Monday to Friday

For nearly 130 years, the art of blending Bundaberg Rum has been solely a pursuit for our Master Distillers.

One to keep. One to enjoy.
