About
Beenleigh is Australia's original rum. Created before any other rum in the country. And over 130 years later, we're still making rum the traditional, "boutique" way. Still operating from our original stone building upon the banks of the Albert River at Eagleby. Still exclusively sourcing Australia's finest molasses from the country's only remaining family-owned sugar mill. And still pot stilling using our original copper equipment. We then age every drop of our golden liquid gracefully in handmade oak brandy barrels to create Beenleigh's distinctive, luscious flavour and its velvety smooth finish. Making it perfect for sipping neat or over ice. Like only a truly great rum can be. Visit Australia's oldest registered and continuously working distillery. Join us for a tour to learn about our history and the colourful people that have made the Beenleigh Artisan Distillery an iconic Queensland attraction. Understand how our master distillers craft quality award winning rums and sit back and enjoy the flavour, textures and aromas as part of the tasting experience.

Great tour
Jul. 2021
A very informative tour and very fortunate to have a tour guide named Logan. What a great guide and able to answer any questions we had.

The tasting was great (even though I do not drink alcohol) I did taste two of the rums and was pleasantly surprised.

Our thanks to both Logan and Liam for a great day out.

A very Enjoyable, Interesting 2hr tour&taste
Apr. 2021 • Couples
A great way to spend a very enjoyable 2hrs.
The tour was relaxed, informative and very interesting.
The tasting was perfect in quantity, selection and information.
Perhaps an option to buy a cheese or antipasto platter would improve the experience.
The staff were welcoming, friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and passionate about their products, but in a reserved, proud way.
Please support this terrific, historic and local business - you won’t regret a visit and will be impressed by the flavours and quality.
Great to visit individually, as couples, friends and looks like a great venue location for all types of events or celebrations.

Great Tour And Enjoyable Hour or So
Enjoyed the tour and tasting experience. Loved the history and science of the distillery on a tour with Liam. Tasting afterwards was also enjoyed but can't say the early rums of the ten were as enjoyable as the last few! As good as it was, can't say I am a convert to white rum. Lovely tasting and shop space. Well worth a visit.

Excellent informative tour

If you are thinking about doing something different with a group of friends, I highly recommend the tour and tasting at Beenleigh Artisan Distillery. Liam was our guide, he was professional and able to answer our many questions as we were walking through the historic distillery. We learned a lot about rum (of course) and the history of the area.
After the tour, we were able to sample 10 of the Rums created, and came away happy with our purchases.
The modern tasting and sales section of the distillery is very tastefully done, and the old historic distillery itself is wonderful.

Good experience
Jul. 2020 • Couples
Great time to review as we've just finished the post tour tasting :) It was seriously an interesting tour though, small groups, learning about the history of the place & the process of how they make rum. Apparently Beenleigh Distillery punches well above it's weight in word judging as well. Easy parking, good pricing, wide range available for purchase.Would recommend

NOT IMPRESSED WITH YOUR ONLINE BOOKING FOR THIS TOUR
Mar. 2020
After over an hour drive from our accommodation to Beenleigh Artisan Distillery
we arrived in time for our booked tour,which was 10_30am today (Monday)the tour was booked and paid for through your website only to be told that they DO NOT DO TOURS ON Monday and Tuesday
After a few words with the management we were given a personalised tour with the Distillerey Manager , he had to leave other important tasks to accommodate us and to accommodate YOU
You need to ensure your tour booking information is up to date and correct if not you would be processing a claim from us not only for the tour but the time and effort your company put us through

Distillery Tour and Tasting Flooded with history and flavour!
Jan. 2020 • Friends
Beenleigh Distillery is the oldest continuously licensed distillery in Australia and produces Australian style rum (a variation on English style rum). It was lots of fun taking the guided tour and learning about the distillery’s history, especially as the facility has flooded several times. The old wooden vats for aging the rum are fascinating. After the tour we had a tasting and I loved getting a quick introduction to the range. Their Double Cask rum is lovely and I would highly recommend their Inner Circle label to any rum aficionados looking for something a step up in ABV and complexity, while checking out their liqueur range for a super sweet super approachable drop anyone could enjoy!

Great experience
We had lived in the area for some 15 years and never took a tour there, moved away from the area 11 years ago. We booked our tour which was a very relaxed and informative, it taught us a bit about the area we had lived and never known and how the distillery got going. After the tour we had a rum tasting of 9 of thier products. It was informative and not rushed.
Time well spent.

Tour was very informative
Dec. 2019
The tour guide was very informative and interesting. Told the story of how Beenleigh Artisan Distillery came into being. How the place also survived the floods and carried on (not to give to much away). The Vats they use and the tasting after the tour oh my. What can I say except try for yourself.

Have been several times and am a member, but still enjoy going occasionally.

Excellent tours of the Distillery which has an extensive and interesting history, especially for visitors either from other other areas or Australian States, or from overseas.

Souvenirs are not cheap, but are well made and this particular Rum can only be purchased at the Distillery.
