Queensland-based Bundaberg Rum Distillery awarded trophy & Double Gold Medal for Best Distillery Visitor Centre at International Spirits Challenge 2020
Off the back of winning Gold at the Australian Tourism Awards earlier in 2020, Bundaberg Rum has done it yet again, scooping not only Gold, but the Double Gold Medal and trophy for Best Distillery Visitor Centre, in the Spirits Tourism Awards component of the International Spirits Challenge 2020.
The Bundaberg Rum Distillery faced off against international competition to take the main prize for the Distillery Visitor Centre category, being recognised as a Double Gold and trophy winner. The Blend Your Own Rum Experience was also highly commended with a Gold medal in the Distillery Tour category, behind Irish Distillery, Roe & Co. Judges applauded the Bundaberg team on their dedication to promoting local tourism and boosting the economy, as well as providing a superb experience steeped in brand heritage.
These awards for the Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience are the latest additions to Bundy’s bulging trophy cabinet, which is already home to over 200 domestic and international awards for its rum and tourism experiences and re-affirms the Bundaberg Rum Distillery as not only Australia’s best and most awarded rum distillery* and a must-see tourist attraction, but also the best distillery visitor centre in the world.
Duncan Littler, Bundaberg Rum D2C Marketing & Experience Manager, says “To take home an international award of this calibre is an incredible feeling, especially so soon after our last recognition!
“The team are also riding high off the back of our multiple award wins, especially following a year in which we had to pause our Visitor Experience operations for a short time. It is down to their never-ending drive and passion to create an unforgettable customer experience that we take home these coveted accolades. We’re now open again and excited to welcome back visitors as we look ahead to the future.”
The International Spirits Challenge 2020 was judged in September with trophy winners announced last night.
Here at Bundaberg Rum, we are thrilled to announce the upcoming launch of our newest limited-release series - Bundaberg Rum Distillery Edition.
The Distillery Edition series will be an annual release, with a new, expertly crafted rum launching each year with its own unique story and rich flavour profile, as a celebration of our famous Distillery's birthday on November 22nd.
Kicking things off, the first expression in this limited-edition series will be Bundaberg Rum Small Batch Distillery Edition: Hidden Barrels, a one-of-a-kind blend crafted from newly rediscovered barrels found deep within our historic barrel house.
Crafted using 16 year-old rum aged in heavy charred American oak barrels, 15 year-old rum aged in ex-port barrels, 10 year-old rum aged in ex-bourbon barrels and 8 year-old rum aged in ex-sherry barrels, Bundaberg Rum Small Batch Distillery Edition: Hidden Barrels is an incredibly bold rum, and one that we are proud to proclaim as one of the Distillery's finest.
