    THE BUNDABERG RUM DISTILLERY EXPERIENCE

    After exploring the Bundaberg Rum Museum Experience and immersing yourself in the rich history of Bundaberg Rum, join one of our expert Distillery Guides on a guided journey deep into the heart of our fully operational Bundaberg Rum Distillery.

    More about the tour

    After you’ve spent some time exploring the museum, join one of our Distillery Guides on a journey deep into the heart of the Bundaberg Rum Distillery. Start by visiting our Molasses well – which holds up to 5 million litres of molasses, fresh from our neighbours at Millaquin Sugar Mills

    Then learn about how we ferment and distill our liquids. And finally on to our grand Barrel House, where you’ll learn about how we age and mature our rum for a minimum of two years before our liquid makes it’s way into a bottle.

    Once you’ve experienced the sights and smells of our distillery, you’ll return to our Bundaberg Rum Tasting Bar, where you can sample any of the top shelf rums from our range. Cheers to that!

    THE BUNDABERG RUM MUSEUM EXPERIENCE

    Located within a retired Bondstore that has previously aged some of Bundaberg's finest rums; this self-paced interactive Bundaberg Rum Museum Experience will allow to see, touch and smell your way through the rich history of Bundaberg Rum.

    More about the tour

    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".

    BLEND YOUR OWN RUM EXPERIENCE

    After enjoying your Distillery tour, learn the art of blending with two expert Blend Your Own Rum Guides. Each guest will craft their unique blend, pour it direct from the barrel, cap it, label it and leave the very same day with two personalised bottles. One to keep, and one to enjoy!

    More about the tour

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

    That is until now.

    During the Blend Your Own Rum Experience, visitors will be exposed to the art of blending our world famous rum. You’ll spend 60 minutes with two of our expert Blend Your Own Rum Guides who will teach you the art of tasting rum straight from the barrel.

    Once you’ve selected your favourites, our guides will teach you the art of blending, and help you craft your very own personalised blend. You’ll then pour it yourself, direct from the barrel, cap it, label it and leave that very same day with two of your very own bottles with your name on them.
