Anniversary Rum is being produced by its master craftsmen by blending some of the distillery’s oldest and rarest rums.
“The launch of BDC 125th Anniversary Rum represents the pinnacle of all that the BDC has achieved in 125 years and celebrates the distillery’s long-spanning history of expert craftsmanship, ingenious thinking, determination and collaboration,” the company said.
BDC 125th Anniversary Rum will initially be available at its Queensland distillery before wider availability from selected retailers across the country after the company’s birthday on November 22.
It is a limited edition product, with 1888 numbered bottles to be produced in a nod to the company’s birth date in 1888.
“As Australia’s favourite rum brand, we want to mark this momentous milestone by giving back to all of the people who have helped take Bundaberg Rum to where it is today,” marketing manager at Bundaberg Rum, Andrew Oughton, said. “Through BDC 125th Anniversary Rum, we hope to offer Bundy enthusiasts an exceptional liquid, fit to parallel the exceptional passion and loyalty we’ve seen from our customers over the past 125 years.”
The Bundaberg 125th Anniversary Rum contains a unique blend of our oldest and rarest rums up to 35 years old. This incredible rum is layered with delicate hints of honey, caramel, spice and a long smooth finish. It will be available in two sizes, 700mL and 125mL, from 23rd November.
Our 700mL edition features an exquisite crystal decanter, two stunning crystal tumblers and a handcrafted walnut wooden casing, while our 125mL bottle is set in a striking cherry wood frame.
The 700mL bottle will be available first from the Bondstore and then selected retailers for $1,250. The 125mL bottle will be available from the Bondstore for $125.
