Bundaberg Rum Crowned World's Best. Again.

Bundaberg Rum celebrates three new award wins

Kicking off 2019 with a bang, Bundaberg Rum has just scooped three new awards for their Queensland distillery and Spirit of Bundaberg Festival, seeing off many international competitors to put the Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience firmly on the map as ‘World’s Best’. The recent influx of awards across the Distillery continue to establish the Visitor Experience as a bucket list tourist attraction for domestic and international travellers.

Already Australia’s most awarded rum distillery, the Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience picked up the award for The World’s Best Distillery Retail Experience, along with The World’s Best Distillery Event for the Spirit of Bundaberg Festival at the Drinks International Spirits & Distillery Tourism Challenge 2019.

The latest awards mark the third year in a row that the distillery has scooped such prestigious titles from The Drinks International Challenge Series, which aim to recognise innovation and excellence amongst distilleries and associated businesses. Bundaberg Rum Distillery has previously won:

  • World’s Best Distillery Retail Experience in both 2018 and 2017; and
  • World’s Best Distillery Event in 2018 and 2016 for The Spirit of Bundaberg Festival.

Duncan Littler, Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience Operations & Brand Manager, says: “These prestigious new awards help us to establish the Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience as a must do for tourists and locals alike. Our rum comes from humble roots but continues to be recognised on a global stage, and that truly is an exciting place to be. With our Visitor Experience seeing double digit growth in 2018, and Blend Your Own Rum being a stand out for those wanting a uniquely personalised experience, we look forward to more visits and awards this year!”
