The Bundaberg Distilling Co. was born in 1888, when a band of ingenious Sugar Millers turned a horrendous Molasses surplus into fine Rum.
125 years later, more than 85,000 people 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.
There are two tour options:
BDC Story Self Guided Tour - Touch panels and interactive visual displays bring over 125 years of crafting rum to life. You can make this tour as long or as short as you want.
BDC Distillery Experience Guided Tour - Your tour guide will lead you to the swirling wells of molasses, mysterious processes of fermentation and distillation, around to the grand Barrelhouse where you walk through an historic oak vat the size of a small house, and then finally to the bottling plant.
Adult guests aged 18 years and over (LPA+) are also invited to two samples in the Bundy Tasting Bar at the conclusion of the tour.
You can visit the retail store even if you do not go on a tour.Visit Website
