About

Beenleigh is Australia’s oldest operating distillery, surrounded by both sugarcane and rum distillery history. We created Australia’s original Rum, back before even Coca Cola was invented.

Over 136 years later we’re still crafting small-batch rum the traditional way, at our distillery on the banks of the Albert River in Eagleby QLD.

Our Products

Founded in 1884 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. 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.
