Goslings Black Seal Rum 70cl
Bundaberg is an Australian rum producer that started producing rum in 1888 when a group of Australian sugar millers where facing a huge surplus of molasses and decided to create rum from the excess. Today Bundaberg rum is still made from local sugar cane that grows readily in the hot fertile Queensland region. The molasses that is produced from the sugar cane is then double distilled to help get the signature Bundy taste before it is aged for at least 2 years in oak barrels.
Bundaberg Red is then filtered three times to produce the signature smoothness that Bundaberg Red is known for. The first filtration stage is chill filtration, the rum is cooled to around 4 celcius before being passed through an absorption filter to remove impurties. The next stage is filtration through a layer of active carbon that removes further impurities. The final level of filtration is Bundaberg's unique red gum filtration where they filter the rum through a layer of Australian red gum collected from local Australian trees. This final layer of filtration takes out many of the heavier notes normally associated with Bundy and lets the often overlooked notes such as vanilla shine through.
