Burleigh bar Rosella’s teams up with Bundaberg Rum to release an exclusive Bundy blend
Ahh yes, the good ol’ Bundy Rum. Some of us love it, some loathe it – either way, we can all agree on the fact that Bundaberg Rum is a true Aussie icon. We all know rum in general is having its time in the spotlight again, similar to the revival of gin and whisky, and now Gold Coasters have more reason to jump on the rum bandwagon – the Rosella’s X Bundy Rum collab.
That’s right, rum is cool again – and the coast’s own Australiana-themed bar Rosella’s is making sure of it. Owners Jon Debeere and Jack Connor have teamed up with Bundaberg to make their very own version of the famous Aussie rum. The exclusive collab blend has been predominately aged in sherry casks (plus a kiss from the bourbon barrels) with a heavy char level.
The new drop is only available at Rosella’s – you can order it neat (the best), on the rocks (second best), or you can ruin it with Coke. Resident cocktail wizard Jack has also created a new sip to mark the Bundy release, featuring a nip of the new blend with burnt butter, pandan, wattleseed, caramel, port and coffee oil. Oh, and on Sunday October 20, the Rosella’s fellas are celebrating the release with a Bundaberg takeover, aptly named Bundy Sundy, with jaffles and rum being slung from 4:00 pm.
