Husk Farm Distillery has won Gold in the Tourism Wineries, Distilleries, and Breweries category at the NSW Tourism Awards.
The Silver medal went to Courabyra Wines in Tumbarumba, while Cape Byron Distillery took out Bronze.
Husk Farm Distillery said that the win was very humbling and the whole Husk team was excited to be recognised for their work.
“This win is a testament to the hard work and vision of our entire team at Husk Farm,” the distiller said.
“We hope this award will give us more opportunity to bring people together on our farm in the beautiful Tweed Valley and showcase the region, our unique Ink Gin and the sustainable connection between Husk Rum and the land.”
The awards are managed by the NSW Tourism Industry Council powered by Business NSW, the state’s peak business organisation, and supported by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.
“The NSW Tourism Awards celebrate those tourism experiences that inspire visitors to #feelnewsouthwales and recognise those businesses who exemplify outstanding tourism experiences,” said Paula Martin, Executive Director, NSW Tourism Industry Council.
“These businesses provide leadership in innovation, marketing and in the delivery of quality products and services. They also advance and promote the NSW and Australian tourism industry through consistent customer service and quality experiences.”
Husk Distillery will represent NSW at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards to be held in Darwin, 15 March 2023.
