DESCRIPTION

Go behind the scenes of the Bundaberg Rum Distillery and then sit down with 2 expert distillers to mix your very own rum blend direct from the barrel! The blend your own rum experience gives visitors the chance to learn the history behind the iconic Australian spirit brand and see first hand how the rum is produced. First, you will join a 1 hour guided tour to view the giant Molasses wells and understand each step of the process from distilling, fermentation and finally the ageing process. After the tour, join expert rum guides to learn the art of tasting rum direct from the barrel. Then sit down and let your taste buds guide you as you work to mix your own blend based on your favourite flavours. Once you are happy with the mix, bottle it, label it and leave with two personalised blends to enjoy longer after the tour.

The entire Bundaberg Rum Blend Your Own experience is run on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 1pm to 3pm. Master the art of distilling and book your Bundaberg Rum experience online here!
