Description

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.

Other Information

Children:
Children are certainly welcome but there are no on-site children's activities outside of the tour. Samples in the Bundy Tasting Bar are available only to adults aged 18 years and over (LPA+).

Disabled:
The Visitor Centre and most of the tour route is accessible by wheelchair or walking frame. The use of motorised wheelchairs is more restricted due to the potential for ignition in highly flammable areas.

Further Details:
The BDC Distillery Experience combines The BDC Story with a guided expedition deep into the heart of their working distillery. The tour starts in the molasses wells, and follows the rum through the fermentation and distillation process. Visitors can then see their huge historic oak vats where the rum is aged, and then it's onto the bottling hall where the final product is ready to be sold and enjoyed.
After the tour, relax in the Bundy Bar and sample some of the famous Bundaberg Rum delivered direct from the distillery, or head to the Bundaberg Rum retail store to purchase the perfect gift or memento. Many items are exclusive to the distillery such as the famous Bundaberg Rum Royal Liqueur, and here you can even create your own personalised bottle of Bundaberg Rum - a great souvenir of your trip to the Bundaberg Distilling Company Bondstore.
All visitors to the Bundaberg Distilling Company Bondstore under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
