Happy 125th Birthday Bundy Rum!

TO CELEBRATE its 125th birthday, Bundaberg Distilling Co has set sail on the high seas to take its latest rum to major ports across the country.

Bundaberg Mayor Mal Forman and Member for Hinkler Keith Pitt were on hand yesterday at the distilling site, to present a bottle of the strictly limited edition rum to Marty Woods, captain of the Bundaberg Rum tall ship.

A Bundaberg Distilling Co spokeswoman said the latest rum creation would have a limited run of 1888 numbered bottles and in a nod to the company's humble beginnings, the ship would sail 1888km to Brisbane, Newcastle and Sydney.

The organisation has also compiled a list of 125 top Australian thinkers, hand-picked by noted historical author Peter FitzSimons.

Among the 125 Australians listed, was renowned Bundaberg aviator Bert Hinkler, chosen for his ingenious contribution to aviation.
