Husk Distillers – accessible activities Tweed Region

When I visited the Tweed region last year I was attending a travel writer’s conference. Our welcome drinks event was held at Husk Distillers located in Tumbulgum in Northern NSW. The setting was perfect for a celebration as it was our first in-person conference in three years. As I’ve already shared somewhere to stay in the Tweed Region, somewhere to swim with fabulous accessible facilities and somewhere to get your cultural fix, it only seems fitting that I share a great place for a drink, a rum or gin tasting, and lunch. The Husk Distiller is a little slice of heaven in the countryside with dreamy views and I was thrilled to find it’s also wheelchair accessible.

While I love my Friday night drink, I’m not a big drinker, and I have to admit to not drinking rum but I do have a recent appreciation for gin. Husk Distillers has the best gin I’ve tried. I’m no gin connoisseur I just know what I like and the Ink gin from Husk is delicious and extremely pretty. The Australian craft gin is made in small batches and is floral infused. The Husk Distillers experimented with the curious colour changing properties of an exotic flowering legume from Thailand known as Butterfly Pea and that is what adds to the beauty and unique nature of their gin.

The Husk rum story is just as inventive and unique with the distillers harvesting sugar cane to produce the rum. If you’re a rum aficionado take a look a the process the Husk Distillers use.

As I was attending a private function, I haven’t tried items from the Husk menu but if the finger food we savoured with our gin is anything to go by, this is a great spot to stop for a drink and a nibble. Everything we had was finger-licking good.

While everyone else at our traveller writer’s function was sipping on their gin I ducked off to check out the accessible bathroom. Of course I was unlucky enough to be sprung mid-photo taking by a travel writer I’d never met. I went on to explain what I was doing and why and we had a good laugh about. Talk about a good conversation ice-breaker.

As you can see from the photo, my investigations did confirm that Husk Distillers offer a spacious unisex accessible bathroom.

I highly recommend a stop at Husk Distillers. Check their website for the menu and opening times.

As I mentioned above, I was a guest at Husk as part of our conference.
