It was back in 2012 when Husk Distillers produced its first bottle of agricole rum, capturing the unique flavours of the region by using the family farm’s home-grown sugar cane. Unlike most run-of-the-mill rums, which are made from molasses, Husk’s golden-hued sugar cane by-product was a new expression of Australian rum, and became known for its reflection of provenance. Bound by the limited harvesting season for sugar cane, the barrel-ageing timeframes, and their determination to stick to an ethos of closed-loop production, Husk’s head distiller Paul Messenger was forced to diversify into the (far quicker) world of gin production. Little did the family know that, as a way of passing time while their beloved rum aged to perfection in the barrels, they would soon be creating the now world-famous purple-hued Ink Gin.
Husk is also running distillery tours from Wednesday to Sunday for those keen to learn more.
Set in the summer of 1985, this season of “Stranger Things” finds small-town Hawkins, Indiana, in the midst of change (no surprise). The show’s core protagonist group is on the cusp of high school, grappling with themes of love and friendship, and tackling a looming danger.
