September 18, 2017 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

Located on the grounds of the iconic Bundaberg Rum Distillery, the award-winningSpirit of Bundaberg Festival returns for the fourth time on Saturday 14 October.

Serving up rum-inspired food, rum cocktails, the best in local music and the latest Bundaberg Rum Distillery releases – the festival is a celebration of all that Bundaberg has to offer, bringing together locals, travellers, and food and drink lovers alike.
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 for a deliciously sweet hit.

Performing on the recently revamped grounds and visitor facilities of the Bundaberg Rum Distillery will be popular Queensland band Radio Club Band and the winner of the 2017 Bundaberg Battle of the Sounds competition. The competition, now in its second year and held in partnership with SEA FM, finds the best local talent to headline at the festival.

Festival goers will be among the first to try, and buy, the latest Bundaberg rum release, Bundaberg Rum Small Batch Silver Reserve – a premium white rum perfect for summer cocktails. The distillery store will be open for those wanting to add to their Bundaberg Rum collection with exclusive rums only found at the cellar door as well as Bundaberg Rum Solera, voted the World’s Best Dark Rum at the World Rum Awards in London earlier this year.

“The Spirit of Bundaberg Festival is our way of thanking the community for their continued support. 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,” says Duncan Littler, Senior Brand Manager for Bundaberg Rum.

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