TWO of the Bundaberg Distilling Company's limited-release rums have been recognised globally at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition this week.

Both Master Distillers Collection releases - the Double Barrel and Dark Oak rum - were awarded gold and silver medals facing in the face of stiff competition from more than 1400 spirits.

Bundaberg Distilling Company site manager Graham Wrigglesworth said he was elated for with the recognition of their rums and proud of the craftsmen's efforts.

"We've always believed that this was our best rum ever," he said.

"We are on a great journey here to create world-class rums."

These awards come four years after the Master Distillers' Collective was dreamt up by the master craftsmen at the Bundaberg Distilling Company in a bid to produce unique handcrafted liquids to rival the best boutique rums in the world.

"Three of our guys went on a fishing trip and sat around thinking how they could create world-class rums," he said.

"It's a real accolade to those guys who came up with the idea and pushed the company to invest in the rums."

The double barrel was launched on March 16 while the silver medal-winning Dark Oak was launched last October.

Mr Wrigglesworth said both limited-release rums had been selling well and were still available to buy.
