Boris Johnson gives Bundaberg Rum a plug
BRITISH Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has name-dropped Bundy Rum during a national press conference with his Australian counterpart Julie Bishop.
Responding to a question from a UK Evening Standard journalist asking if Brexit could lead to cheaper Aussie wine, Mr Johnson said "there are great opportunities".
He then went on a riff about Australian scotch whiskey tariffs before adding: "Whereas I don't think we have any tariffs at all on... Bundaberg Rum."
It's not the first time our rum has had a mention from a politician.
In December last year, Queensland senator James McGrath proclaimed that he'd invented the Bundaberg Rum affogato.
