Bundaberg Rum wins gold at international awards

Off the back of winning Gold at the Australian Tourism Awards earlier in 2020, Bundaberg Rum has done it again, scooping not only gold, but the double gold medal and trophy for Best Distillery Visitor Centre, in the Spirits Tourism Awards component of the International Spirits Challenge 2020. This adds to a list of accomplishments by the company.
The Bundaberg Rum Distillery faced off against international competition to take the main prize for the Distillery Visitor Centre category, being recognised as a Double Gold and trophy winner. The Blend Your Own Rum Experience was also highly commended with a Gold medal in the Distillery Tour category, behind Irish Distillery, Roe & Co. Judges applauded the Bundaberg team on their dedication to promoting local tourism and boosting the economy, as well as providing a superb experience steeped in brand heritage.

These awards for the Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience are the latest additions to Bundy’s trophy cabinet, which is already home to more than 200 domestic and international awards for its rum and tourism experiences. It also re-affirms the Bundaberg Rum Distillery as not only Australia’s best and most awarded rum distillery and a must-see tourist attraction, but also the best distillery visitor centre in the world.
“To take home an international award of this calibre is an incredible feeling, especially so soon after our last recognition,” said Duncan Littler, who is Bundaberg Rum D2C’s marketing and experience manager.
“The team are also riding high off the back of our multiple award wins, especially following a year in which we had to pause our Visitor Experience operations for a short time. It is down to their never-ending drive and passion to create an unforgettable customer experience that we take home these coveted accolades. We’re now open again and excited to welcome back visitors as we look ahead to the future.”
