    Question Private Reserve is Back?

    I saw a thread on here from before that indicated that Private Reserve's owner passed away and that the ink was gone.

    But I recently saw it pop up on Goulet, who haven't even carried the brand for a number of years. Is it back under new ownership?

    Also, where do you get your fountain pen news?

    It is listed under their "coming soon" page.

    "Recently under new ownership, Private Reserve inks now have a modernized logo and new gift box. The new 60ml (2.03oz) glass bottle has a ridged black cap."

    Interested in the answer to the OP's original question about ownership.
    The owner of Private Reserve Ink, Darla Aniline, passed away a few months ago.
    Actually, Darla was a "new" owner of PR; she purchased it in January 2018.

    I have not heard anything about newer ownership, etc.
    However, I do know that at the time of her death there was a substantial amount of unsold inventory which remained.
    So, is someone else now producing the PR inks or are we seeing just a liquidation of remaining inventory?

    Yafa picked up the brand and will be distributing the ink. No idea who will be making it.

    Very interesting. And I have similar questions.

    Goulet might explain.

    I just wrote them an email inquiry about it. I'll share the reply if I get one.

    Their reply:


    Thank you for reaching out to us! While these are the original formulas to make the color, these are brand new and freshly mixed inks. I hope this helps!

    They could have at least fixed the spelling of Avacado.

    Looks like it's spelled with an "o" on the new labels, too.

    I suppose it's one way that we know it is new bottles. But yeah, I miss the the panache of the old.

    Or should it be "penache"?
