What you can expect

Uncover the history of Australia's favourite rum distillery - Bundaberg Rum with an exclusive behind the scenes distillery experience. Book the experience online here for your chance to tour the operational rum distillery, wander through a retired 'Bondstore' that now houses an interactive museum plus end the tour by sampling top shelf rums from the Bundaberg Rum range. The distillery experience begins with entry to the interactive and informative museum to wander through the repurposed 70,000 litre maturation vats that were used to mature and age the rum. See the world's largest collection of rum and discover the history of the well loved 'Bundy Bear' here.

Next, is a 1 hour guided tour inside the Bundaberg Rum distillery to see the giant Molasses wells that can hold up to 5 million litres of Molasses, view the distillation and fermentation process in action and then finish at the Barrel House to hear how the rums are aged and matured for a minimum of 2 years. On completion of the tour, taste any two top shelf rums from the range. The Bundaberg Rum Distillery Experience is a sensory overload as you can see, hear, smell and taste Bundaberg Rum.

It was a great tour

It was a great tour. Our guide Alex was very funny and of course, the taste testing was enjoyable definitely recommend this tour for families as our daughter enjoyed herself as well. There is also plenty of history in the museum including info about the fire and the floods. Definitely go!
