Arnhem Collection Launch

Last Friday we joined forces with local Byron Bay brand Arnhem to celebrate the launch of their latest collection, Marigold, in an intimate sunset picnic in the cactus garden at Plantation House - just 10 minutes down the road from our distillery.

Marigold is a collection which has been made in the most conscious way possible, using low impact, compostable fabric, produced from sustainably sourced raw wood pulp. The bright colours & detailed floral designs make Marigold a stunning spring collection. 

Ladies from up & down the coast gathered around a table loaded with florals & platters, cozying up on cushions from Wandering Folk. To complement the amazing cheese platters provided by Plantation House, we decided to mix up a simple Ink & Tonic.

We paired Ink with another brand which started out in the Northern Rivers - StrangeLove. We've tried the whole delicious range from StrangeLove and found that the No 8 tonic pairs best with Ink Gin - the super cute bottles are an added bonus.

To play on the spiky vibes of the cactus garden we garnished the G&Ts with thyme and dianthus Supra pink edible flowers from Bloom.

 
 

Katie & James from Bloom have a farm (Green Cauldron Farm) in Tyalgum, deeper in the Tweed Valley. Being so local, they have become our regular edible flower supplier. They also make delicious syrups under their brand The Native Collection which we regularly use in cocktails. 

Congratulations to the Arnhem team for releasing Marigold! We loved being a part of the celebration.
