Welcome to Husk Farm Distillery - the home of Ink Gin and makers of Australia's only paddock-to-bottle Cultivated Rum.

We are located on our 150 acre family farm in the Tweed Valley, with views across the paddocks towards Wollumbin.

Our cellar door is open Wednesday-Sunday for experiences, tastings, and a light lunch. Book a distillery tour via our website, sip seasonal cocktails while overlooking the fields, and discover a new appreciation for rum and gin with a tasting paddle.

We do have a small food menu, so you can nibble while you sip. View the menu online.

Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Gorgeous to sit out on the lawn and enjoy the view. Tasty and thoughtful food and cocktail options and a lovely explanation of the background behind what is distilled by husk

From our arrival to us leaving, the experience was FANTASTIC. The staff were amazing with their hospitality, attention to detail and effortless expertise. Perfectly paired food with an exceptional selection of custom cocktails.
We enjoyed a quiet lunch for two, and already looking forward to returning with a group. Husk Distillery is a must for anyone visiting or traveling through the area.

Service staff require more training, when your paying $200 for lunch and drinks for 2 you’d expect more attentive service.

Only half menu available, kitchen closed 15 mins after reservation (booked in advance) no apology from staff, food went cold as we waited for side plates we asked 2 different staff members and they never arrived!

When I pointed out that their covid kitchen hours on their website were inaccurate, we got attitude instead of an apology or a thanks for letting us know I’ll pass that onto management so we don’t inconvenience other patrons.

Go for a drink and use the self ordering option on the lawn so you don’t have to deal with unfriendly and untrained service staff.

We had a wonderful afternoon at Husk on a perfect sunny Sunday. Our only gripe was the music. Incessant repetitive doof doof tracks were not to our liking and did not fit with the ambiance required.

What a fabulous place to visit for Sunday lunch for a catch-up with friends. The day was perfect. The staff, service, and overall experience was wonderful. Being greeted by a friendly and interested staff member was a great start to the afternoon. The lovely person who took our food order and drink order was delightful. What a happy staff member of an efficient team. Will definitely be returning with others. Thank you Husk.

Menu didn’t suit the location.
More shared plates
Woodford pizzas
Better kids menu
And actual main meals instead of heaps of side dishes would be nice

The food was very average and not great value. They’d do better to just have a pizza oven and cheese boards. Service was really slow, but the drinks came out from the bar super quick! The venue is beautiful and I would go back, just hopeful they rethink the kitchen. Kid friendly too!

Hi Anonymous, We appreciate your feedback. As the core of the Distillery is showcasing our Gin & Rum and the fact that we don't have a Restaurant or fully equipped kitchen onsite, our food offering is small and limited. We still support and showcase local suppliers all through the menu available. Thanks, Team Husk

Great spot, staff fantastic but I found that the meal (chicken) was a bit bland and overcooked. There is a very limited menu also.

Hi Paul, thanks for your feedback. As we don't have a Restaurant onsite, our food menu is small and limited, considering our current facilities. Glad to hear you appreciated our service and grounds! Thanks, Team Husk

look forward to heading back... however next time I hope the staff are educated on mask exemptions. I told the girl we had exemptions and she knew nothing of this and did not accept it.... it made me feel very uncomfortable.

please educate your staff on medical exemptions for wearing masks.

Husk Distillers Cellar Door
Responded on July 7, 2021

Hi Graces, Sorry to hear you felt very uncomfortable with the situation. As required by NSW Government, masks exemptions are only acceptable with a Lawful reason and they're not required to be worn permanently by customers, only when transiting indoors through the Venue. We're put into the position of judging the lawful reason or not by the restrictions imposed. We apologize if that was your case and we didn't acknowledge it at the time. Thanks, Mauricio Gamba Venue Manager

Was my 4th or 5th visit to Husk. Beautiful atmosphere. Great staff. Unfortunately the weather spoiled the occasion. Cold, windy and damp despite the gas heaters. To add to this there wasn’t much choice of hot food to warm us. However I will be back on sunnier days and will continue to recommend Husk to friends.

The 3 dips with pita bread had no depth in taste.
Very bland and baby food like.
The other food was ok. Not great .
Price was very reasonable. Brilliant atmosphere.

Staff were absolutely perfect.
