Queensland’s Capricorn Coast has a new claim to fame with ‘dark and hearty’ Capricorn Spiced Rum (produced by Rockhampton’s Saleyards Distillery) taking out top honours at the 2020 World Rum Awards

Following two rounds of tastings, the local spirit was recognised as the World’s Best Spiced Rum, with judges describing it as “candied fruits on palate with a nice balance of spice, vibrancy and surprise.”

Located in an historic Queensland hotel, Saleyards Distillery was founded in 2016 by a group of young distillers who use Central Queensland molasses for their most popular tipple. 

And they earn bonus points from us for being the latest Queensland manufacturer to change production to make urgently needed sanitiser in the fight against COVID-19.  

While visitor tours are temporarily unavailable, Capricorn Spiced Rum along with a suite of small batch liqueurs, gins and vodkas (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) are available here

Congratulations to Head Distiller Warren Brewer and his team, we look forward to seeing you soon!
