Spirits set ginger beer frothing

Henry’s Ginger Beer is one of the products getting a promotional edge through The Spirit of Tasmania’s Flavours of Tassie initiative. The program has given more than 160,000 passengers opportunities to sample a selection of the State’s finest food and beverages during their Bass Strait crossings. It works well for the owners of Penguin-based Henry’s Ginger Beer, Caroline and Marc Watson-Paul. “We love to get on board and get talking about our ginger beer and the story behind it,” Mrs Watson-Paul said. “The passengers are just so excited to be coming to Tasmania for a holiday and looking forward to tasting the State’s food and beverages. We are just really pleased they get to taste our product first.” Henry’s home-brew style ginger beer is in demand in cafes, restaurants and provedores throughout the State and is sold aboard the Spirits. CEO, Bernard Dwyer, said that the TT Line had set out to uncover little-known Tasmanian gems. “So far this year we have had 48 suppliers present on 81 sailings, and we are expecting bookings to double by the end of the program.”
