Husk Ink Art Series

Ink Gin is always enjoyable, and right now I am awaiting the imminent arrival of the new ‘Art Series’ Ink Gin, in its attractive ‘arty’ bottle. In fact, last week I purchased a few different types of tonic water, just to test which one tasted best with the new gin. I’ll let you know once I get my hands on an actual bottle, as my nearby bottleshops were still awaiting stock this week. You can, however, buy it online at www.inkgin.com.

In the meantime, Husk (the people who make Ink Gin in Tumbulgum, along with their range of agricole rums) have released a fizzy and refreshing Ink Gin and Tonic RTD, with the multi-award winning Ink Gin in a convenient, low-sugar, pre-mixed serve. The Ink Gin people say, ‘The taste is full of vibrant citrus notes complemented by warm native pepper berry and soft butterfly pea blossom paired with a tailor-made tonic. It even has the iconic, all natural, blush pink colour of your regular Ink Gin and Tonic. 

Made famous by Margot Robbie in 2017, Ink was also recently featured in George Clooney and Julia Roberts’s film Ticket to Paradise. 

‘We are incredibly proud of our gin and wanted to make sure we came up with the best RTD possible,’ says head distiller Quentin Brival. 

‘We didn’t rush the process, working for over a year to perfect a recipe which is delicious, easy to drink, bright and clean. We put a healthy dose of gin in every can to create the perfect balance between the botanicals and our tailored tonic.’ 


Ink Gin & Tonic RTD are available from all BWS & Dan Murphy’s stores and online from www.inkgin.com.
