Something special to mark a Bundaberg milestone


There is something quintessentially Australian about enjoying a glass or two of Bundy and Coke on a summer day.

Now drinkers can enjoy Bundy with a twist. Bundaberg Rum has just released new Small Batch Spiced release that celebrates 13 decades of rum craftsmanship by combining 13 specially selected spices with locally made world-class premium rum.

Bundaberg Rum is one of the few single-estate distilleries in the world using all locally sourced ingredients from Bundaberg, Queensland, and has won 144 awards in its 130 years of rum creation!

This month, Bundaberg Rum celebrates 130 years with a new release has been crafted by blending aged reserves with rum mellowed in heavily charred American oak barrels, before being infused with notes of 13 different spices, fruit nectars and citrus zest to produce an intricately complex spiced rum.

This is the fourth release in the Bundaberg Rum Small Batch series.

“Small Batch Spiced is one of our best rums yet," says marketing manager Karl Roche (who would probably be fired if he said anything else).

"It celebrates 13 decades of craftsmanship by combining 13 specially selected spices with world-class premium rum. Those spics include cinnamon, cocoa, black pepper, orange zest and vanlla bean.

"Bundaberg Rum is an Australian-born craft distiller, and we’re so excited to release new Small Batch Spiced as a thank you to our fans in Australia for their support over the years.”

Bundaberg Rum Small Batch Spiced (700ml, 40% ABV, RRP $69.95) is available to purchase at the Bundaberg Distillery Store, online and nationwide including selected duty-free outlets now.

Here's the recipe for a mixologist-style Dark & Stormy:

Add ice to highball glass; squeeze of lime; top up with ginger beer; 30ml Small Batch Spiced Rum; garnish with lime and mix.
