Ink Dry Gin 700ml
In 2012, distiller Paul Messenger began experimenting with the curious colour changing properties of an exotic flowering legume from Thailand known as the Butterfly Pea (Clitoria ternatea).
He spent the next three years assessing a wide range of botanicals including native Australian bush tucker before settling on a balanced recipe of 12 botanicals in perfect harmony with the flower.
The result would turn the most traditional spirit upside down.
For hundreds of years gin was a clear spirit. We added colour.
The colour of Ink Gin is derived from the deep infusion of petals from an exotic blue flower.
This natural floral infusion gives Ink Gin a remarkable and lustrous quality, most elegantly displayed in our signature Ink & Tonic, which changes colour from deep blue to blush pink when mixed.
Ink Gin is naturally infused with no preservatives or chemical stabilisers. Please note that organic colours don’t last forever, so Ink Gin should be stored in a dark place or enjoyed with friends sooner rather than later.
On the east coast of Australia, nestled in the deepest caldera in the southern hemisphere, with the Pacific Ocean to the east and the Gondwana rainforest to the west, lies the small distillery where Ink Gin is produced by hand.
At Husk Plantation Distillery the botanicals are prepared and measured, then placed in our hand-beaten copper pot still. We add 100% Australian grain spirit and the purest water that originally fell as rain over the volcanic rocks of the caldera.
Ink Gin is carefully pot distilled in small batches, tasted regularly for quality, and bottled by hand.
