Monday 17th October 2016 – Construction begins on Husk Distillery 2.0

Earthworks are underway for the construction of Husk Distillers new distillery.

As we have quickly outgrown our pilot plant distillery, which was a simple converted farm shed, the new distillery will have a much higher production capacity and will be complete with a cellar door, bar and visitors centre. Husk Plantation Rum Distillery will be open to the public for tours and tastings, and we hope to throw open the doors in late 2017.
