Limited-edition rum honours rugby league legend


Bundaberg Rum has released a special edition rum honouring Queensland rugby league legend Johnathan Thurston.

The newly released JT batch is a collaboration between Thurston and the Bundaberg distillers.

The limited-edition batch has been unveiled to celebrate the career of the legendary former North Queensland Cowboys player following his retirement last year.

The PR blurb says the rum was "designed and approved by JT himself".

Pre-orders have already sold out but from May 13, bottles will be available at the Bundaberg Rum distillery, all major liquor stores across Queensland and online while stocks last.

All bottles are individually numbered. The JT Batch is available for $59.99 for 700ml (ABV 37%).

Thurston played 332 games in the NRL for Canterbury Bulldogs and the Cowboys between 20012-20018, scoring 2222 points.

He played 37 times for Queensland and 38 times for Australia. A halfback or five-eighth, he won five State of Origin Man of the Match awards and is the all-time leading scorer in Origin games.

Since retiring he has set up a coaching academy.
