Bundaberg UP (Under-proof) is the iconoclastically Australian Dark Rum from our friends in the sugarcane capital of Central Queensland.
Affectionately dubbed 'Bundy Rum', this national favourite was the brainchild of a small number of ingenious farmers who in 1888 stumbled upon a creative function for the surplus molasses that resulted after harvest.
The men named their collective the Bundaberg Distilling Company, waited over two years for the rum to age just right, turned on the tap, and voila! Liquid gold flowed forth from the casks and onto the pages of Australian history.
Also going by the alias of 'Cane Champagne', Bundaberg Rum is a full-bodied, rich and distinctively flavoured rum, produced today by following the same time-honoured processes that made the spirit great in the first place. Playing host to a stronger rum taste, due in part to larger ageing vessels and a unique distillation process, this rum is the perfect accent in cocktails.
Tasting Note: Light, rich golden. Mild heat, oak and spice. Sweet molasses. Mellow, wooded.
