THE HUSK DISTILLERS STORY

Inspired by the diverse and vibrant rum culture of the Caribbean islands and a yearning for fine Australian spirits, distiller Paul Messenger, along with his family and friends, embarked on a journey to create a plantation distillery on their cattle & cane farm, nestled in the green caldera surrounding Mt Warning in Northern NSW.

Our vision was to create a premium, paddock to bottle agricole rum with a unique Australian expression. It’s taken five years and we’ve had to develop new skills and adapt new methods of small-scale cultivation, harvesting and crushing not used in the area before. We’ve designed our distillery based on fermentation, distillation and maturation methods not typically used in commercial rum distilleries and the result is a rum that we are proud to say has the unique characteristics of our part of the world, our provenance.

Husk Rum can only be made from freshly crushed cane juice so its production is restricted to the harvest season from August to November. While rum from our first harvest in 2012 was quietly maturing on oak we began creating a gin, not just another craft gin but something different, something that would challenge people’s perception of what gin can be.

Follow our journey as we build our new distillery and cellar door, developing experimental blends and innovative craft spirits.
