Sweet Tastes of Mackay Isaac

Sweet Tastes of Mackay Isaac

The Mackay Isaac is a region of taste sensations. Framed by the pristine waters of the Great Barrier Reef, the fertile growing fields of the Pioneer Valley and the quintessential cattle country of the Isaac, the region is the place for a full paddock to plate experience.

Let's start with a winner – Did you know that the region is home to one of the best rums in the country?

Sarina Sugar Shed is the workplace of distiller Sarah Parrott, where in just a few short years she and the team have produced a truly fine drop that has already received a raft of awards at the national level. Most recently, their signature Sugar Shed Rum was awarded silver in the 2–4-year rum category at the inaugural Australian Rum Awards. Sounds like an achievement worth toasting!
