Blog: Chris Brook-CarterBundaberg barred - do you want some?

Chris Brook-Carter | 14 March 2005

Bars in the Queensland capital, Brisbane, are refusing to stock the Australian state’s famous liquor, Bundaberg rum, because they claim it makes drinkers aggressive and attracts the wrong crowd.

Five bars have banned it and another will serve it only on specific request.

Bundy, as it is known, is distilled at Bundaberg in Queensland’s sugar cane heartland.

Bundaberg’s marketing manager, Siobhan Saunders, said there was no link between the rum and aggression.

Some 2.5m Australians drink it each year making it the nation’s No 1 spirit.
