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.
Today more than 85,000 humans visit the BDC Bondstore each year, and not a single one leaves disappointed. Some don’t leave, they stick around and soak up the atmosphere of the Bundy Bar, sampling sweet rum at the source. Then they head over to the retail store, where they buy goods to take home, impress and make jealous their friends and family.
