BUNDABERG Rum Distillery was a hive of activity at the weekend as more than 2500 people turned out for the Road to Recovery flood relief event on Saturday.
Bundaberg Distilling Company site manager Graham Wrigglesworth said the day had exceeded their expectations with visitors and locals keen to secure the limited edition rum, the bottles listing the names of Bundaberg's flood effected streets and roads.
"It went incredibly well," he said.
"We probably had a record crowd for any event - it was absolutely amazing.
"We don't have exact numbers yet but we sold about 1500 bottles of rum and about 1000 of those were the Road to Recovery bottles."
Mr Wrigglesworth said crowds were continuing to pick up the limited edition rum, with large numbers turning up at the distillery on Sunday, making it an even bigger than expected weekend for Bundy rum.
