The historic Beenleigh Rum Distillery also produces Inner Circle Rum. Inner Circle was the exclusive preserve of Australia’s Colonial Sugar Refining Company’s board of directors and a handful of its prized clients. Even then they were only entitled to the occasional bottle. Despite its limited availability, word of Inner Circle’s unique flavour became legendary- whispered amongst rum enthusiasts the world over. Inner Circle Rum was lost when CSR sold the brand in 1986. Stuart Gilbert reinvigorated the brand in 2000 when he purchased the trademark and partnered with Malcolm Campbell, old master Distiller, to bring the brand back to life. He sold the brand in 2007, and today it is back and being produced at the Beenleigh Distillery, QLD- using traditional Pot Distillation, keeping in line with how it was once produced by CSR in Australia from 1855-1986. Now available for all Australians, not just the Inner Circle.
