Bundaberg Distilling Company to release new premium rum

THE Bundaberg Distilling Company will release its new Dark Oak premium rum made with hand-picked rum reserves in charred oak barrels at the weekend.

Sunday's launch will showcase the hand-charred American Oak barrels at the centre of Dark Oak's flavour and interested fans and collectors will have the chance to sample the product at tasting sessions.

Bundaberg Rum Bond Store manager Haydn Jobson said the original idea for Dark Oak was inspired by their local cooper.

"He created a set of unique heavily hand-charred American Oak barrels for us to try," Mr Jobson said.

"It is rich, dark rum with enticing oak aromas and hints of caramel and raisins, and rum fans are going to love its unique flavour."

The event kicks off at 8am with breakfast, prize draws and entertainment. Visitors can purchase one of the first specially numbered limited edition bottles of Dark Oak before it goes on sale.
