Bill Lark, founder and owner of Lark Distillery, set the stage for the growing number of distilleries in Tasmania (currently numbering nine and counting). The Island has a temperate climate, barley fields, and peat bogs...perfect surroundings to produce whisky! Lark utilizes quarter-cask barrels that previously held Australian-style port wine.

Tasting Notes

"Of the three standard offerings from Lark, this is by far the most fruit forward of the bunch. Think school-lunch fruit salad from the can. Barrel spices and smoke are minor characters in this play. Oak comes through on the back end and is just a touch on the bitter side. The price is a bit steep so this may not be your everyday dram, but the quality and taste will not make you regret your purchase."
