Bundaberg Polar Bear adrift!

#1
In Australia, floods hit Bundaberg and Maryborough, impacting sugar cane production.

This is serious.

For those who don't know, this area is the home of "Bundy" AKA
Bundaberg Rum AKA The bear that smacks you round the head, shits in your mouth, steals all your money, trashes your room and leaves a hippocrocadilla pig in your bed (it's name is to do with an evily smiling animal on the label - often the last thing squiffy eyes see as they slide floorwards off the table.

Bundy is like the Buckfast of the antipodes, but slightly more socially acceptable (well, for aussies....) And its brewed by proper pissheads not celibate teetotal monks.

Buy all the stock you can, clear the shelves and hoard it. Kevin Bloody Wilson doesn't sound the same without a good slug

Bundaberg draught rum and coke.

Had two pints of it in Brisbane where I have been told it is now banned.

Great drink, fucking horrible price to pay re : Psychosis, needing to hit everybody and the utterly fucking horrible hangover.

The drink of champions.

Done the distillery tour back in 1987, bought the proverbial bottle at the distillery, supped the lot over the next couple of weeks. Lovely stuff, must source some out then if it's likely to become scarce. Especially as they'd already been hit hard in 2011 with similar floods...

Got me hankering after a few scoops of the stuff again. Contemplated making my own (3 parts toilet duck 4 sachets of motorway sugar and some boot polish) but decided to go on line for some and stumbled across this;

Bet it's a bit too salty for my taste but others on the site may like it.

Not everyone goes mental on Bundy. I'm quite a pleasant harmless drunk.

It's when I'm sober that you need to be careful.

Tastes like fucking antiseptic so it must be good. I'm an aggressive, short-tempered, angry cunt all of the time so it doesn't seem to affect me. The hangover is fucking brutal though.

I don't know why its so popular, a bottle of Mishka is cheaper and gets you just as wankered. Tastes almost as shit, too.

Wot Eric Shawn said. Paint stripper with a caramel/koala-bear-shit after taste. It's cheaper to go to the local garage and get a pint of 20W40. Swing past the local chemist and pick up a pint of industrial strength rubbing alcohol. Mix and -ahem- enjoy.

Oh Gawd, I'd almost managed to forget about Bundy - the usual final tipple in Ned Kelly's in Hong Kong before the inevitable blue kicked off.

I actually found it a pleasant, refreshing and easily (too bloody easily) quaffable drink.

After 2 pints of it I was in no state to fight anybody but others on the same drink started becoming very punchy, not Brits, Aussies.

As I said previously, I heard it had been banned in Bris, is this true and is it only the draught version?

Not sure it's banned here in Brisbane. I never really liked the draught version. Bit too watery for my taste.

I like Bundy, I remember necking 2 cans of the pre mixed with coke stuff from my Best Man's hotel room fridge before we went up to the top of One Tree Hill on Hamilton island so I could get married.

Great day that was, including seeing my wife in a wedding dress firing of a few rounds with a 92F on the range whilst drunk.

How very redneck :)

An old sheila I knew had relos that worked for Bundy and gave me a coke bottle of the stuff they ship overseas. Apparently it's distilled right down to save weight/volume and topped up with water at the destination. That shit would make a chook fight an emu.
