Bundaberg Rum Book a Tour

The Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience & coronavirus (COVID-19).

In light of what is a rapidly evolving situation we’ve made the decision to temporarily close the Bundaberg Rum Distillery Visitor Experience Museum, Distillery and Blend Your Own Rum Experience effective 5pm Thursday 19 March 2020. The Distillery Store will remain open observing all recommended social distancing protocols and additional cleaning and hygiene practices in place.

We hope to reopen the Bundaberg Rum Distillery Visitor Experience Museum, Distillery Tour and Blend Your Own Rum Experience at 9.30am Friday 3 April 2020 but this will be reviewed and may change. We’ll post any new information to the website.

If you have a Museum, Distillery or Blend Your Own Rum Experience ticket during this period, please contact bondstore.arrivals@bundabergrum.com. We will not be taking future bookings for our Museum, Distillery or Blend Your Own Rum Experience until we have reopened the doors to our Brand Home. We may experience a higher than usual volume of requests so please bear with us. We will respond to every query we receive although it may take us a little longer than usual to get back to you.

    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. This tour includes the Museum Experience.

    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.
