Bundy Rum a 'perfect pairing' for roast chicken

POPULAR Aussie food chain Red Rooster is bringing a taste of Bundy to their newest menu.

Bundaberg Rum will be served to customers as part of a new trial along with a handful of other alcohol beverages said to "represent the perfect pairing" to the Aussie franchises' meals.

The trial will be run at select Victorian stores and will only be available with delivery.

The selection will include beer, wine, vodka, bourbon and, of course, Bundy Rum.

"With summer and party season approaching, Red Rooster is now putting a trial in place," a spokesman for the chain said.

"These beverages represent the perfect pairings for Red Rooster's roast chicken menu - Aussie crowd pleasers that will make entertaining and eating all the more enjoyable."

Red Rooster CEO Nick Keenan says the decision is about keeping the franchise "relevant" but that Victoria was selected because it's a "dynamic and forward-thinking foodie state" and "the perfect place for this trial to happen".

He told the Herald Sun there will be "strict limits on alcohol" - meaning customers can only order a six pack or a bottle of wine with their order.

If the trials succeed, Bundy might have a new way to enjoy chicken and rum.
