Bundaberg® Rum Fans Flock To The Bundaberg Distilling Co. For The Launch Of Master Distillers’ Collection™ Two Eighty

Today, the Bundaberg Distilling Co. opened its doors to over 1,000 Bundaberg Rum fans, eager to celebrate the latest gem in the award-winning Bundaberg Rum Master Distillers’ Collection - MDC Two Eighty. With a limited number of bottles available, crowds gathered for several days to be one of the first to purchase the top-shelf rum.

Graham Wrigglesworth, Site Manager, BDC said, “We are thrilled to see thousands of fans gather at the distillery today to toast the arrival of MDC Two Eighty. Using 280 American whisky barrels, we have created our best rum yet, with a flavour unlike anything the distillery has ever created before. The distinctive liquid is sure to please rum connoisseurs, and we encourage them to raise a glass of our new limited edition blend.”

MDC Two Eighty has been expertly crafted at the BDC where select batches of the distillery’s rum reserves were matured in 280 of the world’s finest, charred American whiskey barrels. The result of this intricate crafting process is rich in flavour with a distinct spicy character and smooth, clean finish. While complex in flavour and intensity, MDC Two Eighty retains the hallmark Bundaberg Rum taste. 

The launch event kicked off with Cr Mal Forman, the Mayor of Bundaberg, officially opening the doors to the public. After the doors opened, the celebrations continued with a range of activities including live entertainment, prize draws and a personalised bottle engraving service.

MDC Two Eighty, goes on sale nationwide from Monday, 21 October; RRP $89.99 in select retailers across the country. The launch comes as Bundaberg Rum prepares to celebrate its 125th birthday on 22 November.
