The Substation No.41 RUM BAR is the Brekky Creek's newly launched Rum Bar. Featuring over 400 varieties of Rums sourced from all over the world, the bar proudly shelves some of the most rare and exclusive products and is one of the biggest Rum Bars in the world!

Housed in a renovated electricity substation building on the Breakfast Creek Hotel site, the RUM BAR features an 11.9 metre long Iron Bark timber bar, which once supported the overnight storage bin at the old CSR Sugar Refinery at nearby Teneriffe. It is quite the talking point with visitors and locals and a lovely link with the new Rum Bar collection.

The RUM BAR has been lucky enough to have sourced some key products that are extremely limited, including a bottle Of Havana Club Maximo – one of only 6 bottles that exist in Australia. As the most premium product available from the Havana range, the Maximo is housed in a glass cabinet that centres the bar and sits opposite the limited and very special release bottle of the Bacardi 150th Celebration. The Brekky Creek is honoured to house both these amazing products and so many other key features pieces in the Bar.

The Substation No.41 RUM BAR is the only Hotel in Australia that can proudly announce that they now serve “Rum Off the Wood”. It has been tradition in the Brekky Creek that Beer of the Wood is a must do experience when visiting the Hotel and now patrons can continue the experience and sample the Bundaberg Rum encased in a glorious French Oak Barrel. It’s a truly unique twist on this classic flavour.

Journey through the regions of the world and see for yourself the variety of flavours and colours that make up this magical Rum Journey, try at your own pace or be guided by Stu’s Selections. Enjoy the outdoor seating or the inside air-conditioning as you listen to live entertainment playing Friday and Saturday nights, and Sunday afternoons.

Open from midday until late 7 days a week.

Matusalem Platino White Rum

Dominican Republic

Matusalem Rum Company was started by the Camp brothers in 1872 in Cuba. The company was named after the biblical patriarch Methuselah who was said to have lived for 969 years, symbolising the patient aging and old world craftsmanship.

In the 1940’s the company experienced tremendous growth, capturing 50% of the Cuban market making it the leading rum sold in Cuba. Today descendents of the founders produce Matusalem Rum in the Dominican Republic.

Matusalem Platino White Rum is triple distilled and aged using the solera method in the Dominican Republic. It is clear in appearance with fragrant cotton candy, mocha and coconut cream aromas. A silky entry creates a dry, medium body with fruity, toasted coconut and subtle notes of spice.

Brilliantly balanced and flavourful white rum with 40% alcohol/volume.
