Bundy rum wins international awards

The Bundaberg Distilling Company has topped the honours at two international drinks awards – the 2017 World Drinks Awards in London and the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

At the London World Drinks Awards ceremony, Bundaberg Rum was awarded Best Dark Rum in the World for the Master Distillers’ Collection Solera and Australia’s Best Gold Rum for Master Distillers’ Collection Small Batch.

This is the second time the Australian brand has been awarded major prizes at the World Drinks Awards. The distillery’s prized liquid, the Bundaberg Blenders Edition 2015 was awarded Best Rum and Best Dark Rum in the World in 2016, and Small Batch won World’s Best Gold Rum the same year.

Continuing the brand’s winning streak, Master Distillers’ Collection Solera also picked up a Gold Medal at the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Duncan Littler, Senior Brand Manager at Bundaberg Rum, said: “It’s an honour to see the distillery’s craft recognised once again on a global scale.

“The 2016 Master Distillers’ Collection releases had some big shoes to fill following the Bundaberg Blenders Edition 2015 winning the World’s Best Rum last year, but Bundaberg Solera and Small Batch have delivered world class results. These are two of the most complex rums the distillery has ever created.”

The award-winning rums were judged by a panel of international experts across three rounds and scored on merit of nose, palate, finish, balance, character, complexity and quality.
