New Gin & Rum Distillery Opens in The Tweed

You might be familiar with Husk Distillery for its magical Ink Gin. Now you can visit the cellar door and sample gin, rum and more from their new distillery in The Tweed!

Soak in the beautiful rural location while sipping an original Husk Rum or Ink Gin cocktail in the cellar door and follow the journey from paddock to bottle on a tasting tour.

Husk Distillery tours start with a gin and tonic on arrival (how convivial) before an exclusive behind the scenes tour of the distillery where you'll learn how they make their unique spirits. Finish your tour with a rum tasting flight in the Barrel House. Tours can be pre-booked here, lasting around 45 minutes and cost just $35 per person. Thoughtfully, a designated driver pack is available upon request and the area is serviced by Uber & Taxis so you can indulge responsibly.

Husk is Australia's first agricole rum distillery, which means it's made from freshly crushed sugar cane juice, instead of molasses. Book a tour during the week and you might see the production team in action – bottling, fermenting, distilling or crushing sugar cane during the harvest season (August-October).

Linger a little longer at the cocktail bar or café. Planter's Café will focus on native bush food and locally grown produce. Expect flavours such as roasted wattle seed, flamed lemon myrtle and lilly pilly with a menu crafted to compliment the cellar door with the freshest ingredients the region has to offer. Settle in to Planters Café with its relaxed plantation style and dreamy views across the green pastures to the Tweed River and Mt Warning.

Husk Distillery is located on the picturesque Tweed River at Tumbulgum just 20 minutes from Coolangatta, 45 minutes from Byron Bay and 1.5 hours from Brisbane
