Attendees of the Spirit of Bundaberg Festival will be among the first to try the latest Bundaberg rum release, Bundaberg Rum Small Batch Silver Reserve, a premium white rum.

Located on the grounds of the Bundaberg Rum Distillery, the Spirit of Bundaberg Festival returns for the fourth time on Saturday 14 October.

Serving up rum-inspired food, rum cocktails, and the latest Bundaberg Rum Distillery releases, the festival is a celebration of the Central Queensland town.  The distillery store will also be open, with exclusive rums only found at the cellar door on affer alongside Bundaberg Rum Solera, voted the World’s Best Dark Rum at the World Rum Awards in London earlier this year.

Festival-goers can expect flavour to be a big focus of the festival with more than 20 rum-inspired food stalls serving up dishes including pulled pork rolls with Kakadu Plum & Rum Sauce, BBQ rum sauce pork ribs, onion rings with rum dipping sauce and Bundaberg Royal Liqueur Gelato.

“The Spirit of Bundaberg Festival is our way of thanking the community for their continued support,” says Duncan Littler, senior brand manager for Bundaberg Rum. “We’ve added quite a few awards to our trophy cabinet since our last festival, particularly with Bundaberg Solera winning the World’s Best Dark Rum and the festival winning Best Distillery Event in the World so there’s lots to celebrate.

“More than 7,000 turned out for the festival in 2016 and it’s getting bigger and better every year,”

The Spirit of Bundaberg Festival will open to the public with free entry from 10am to 5pm.
