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.

 

Book online and receive 5% off the following two tours:

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

Join one of our expert Distillery guides on a journey deep into the rich and golden heart of the Bundaberg Rum Distillery.
 
First stop, Molasses - an absolute ocean of it in our largest well that holds up to 5 million litres, freshly delivered every day from our mates over at the Millaquin Sugar Mill.
 
Next, it’s the Fermenting and Distilling of our liquids – some say this is where all the ‘magic’ happens, but this process is a whole other level in skill, craft, and cutting edge scientific stuff.
 
Then it’s onto the grandest house of them all “the Grand Barrel House”. Learn our secrets (not ALL of them though) into our ageing and maturation process. What we can tell you is that it’s a minimum two year process before our liquid even gets a look at a bottle.
 
Finally, what better way to finish off your tour than pulling up a pew to the Bundaberg Rum Tasting Bar. Here you can sample a drop or two of any of our top shelf rums from the Bundaberg Rum range.

Blend Your Own Rum Experience

Blend Your Own Rum Experience

 

For more than 127 years, the art and craft of blending Bundaberg Rum has been solely a pursuit for our Master Distillers. Now, for the first time, the Bundaberg Rum Distillery throws open its doors to share the blending mastery that goes into creating our world famous Bundaberg Rum. 
 
First, get well acquainted with our proud heritage in our fully immersive one-of-a-kind Museum experience that allows you to see, touch and smell your way through the legendary stories and tales that have made us who we are today. Next stop, it’s discovering all the ins-and-outs of the Bundaberg Distillery where you’ll see how it all works behind the bottle in the Distillery Experience guided tour.
 
Last, but most certainly not least, is our one-of-a-kind Blend Your Own Rum (BYOR) Experience. Here, you’ll spend time with two expert BYOR guides teaching you the art of tasting rum straight from the barrel – a selection of our most premium rums, aged in small barrels that have already matured wonderful liquids like Port, Sherry, Whiskey, and Bourbon.
 
Once you’ve chosen your favourites, our guides will teach you the darkest art of blending to help you craft your very own blend - it’s pure personalised perfection. Then you’ll pour it direct from barrel to bottle. Cap it. Label it (with your name of course because it’s your blend), and you’ll leave us the same day with two of your very own bottles of Bundaberg Rum making history. One for later, one for later on.
 
So to recap, thats:
