Lark Distillery was the first licensed distillery in Tasmania since 1839. It was established in 1992 to produce Australian malt whisky, rich in character with a big finish using the best Tasmanian ingredients. Lark Distillery is proudly a boutique Tasmanian owned distillery dedicated to maintaining its proven high quality malt whisky and other unique spirits.
Tasmania is ideally situated to make malt whisky, and yet 150 years after the last licensed Tasmanian distillery closed its doors, it took a whisky lover to realise the environment was perfect. Bill Lark realised that that everything you need for a world-class whisky was in Tasmania – rich fields of barley, an abundance of wonderfully pure soft water, highland peat bogs, and the perfect climate to bring all the ingredients together in a marriage of science, art and passion.
The vision of producing Tasmanian malt whisky was born on a trout fishing trip in the highlands of Tasmania when Bill’s father in-law Max produced a wonderful bottle of single malt. As they enjoyed a drink in the park at Bothwell, surrounded by Georgian buildings, barley fields and the gently flowing Clyde River, Bill said to Max, “I wonder why there isn’t anyone making malt whisky in Tasmania?”.
Lark Distillery is a family affair. Lyn and Kristy Lark (Bill’s wife and daughter, respectively) have played an integral part in growing the business. When Kristy joined the team as head distiller, she was one of the world’s youngest female distillers. Today the Lark Distillery is one of Australia’s leading distilleries, producing high quality, premium spirits using traditional time honoured methods. The Distillery runs an 1800 litre copper pot wash still along with a 500 litre spirit still, and produces twelve to fifteen 100 litre barrels per month.
The range of distilled products includes the flagship Lark Single Malt Whisky, Hailing Mary Vodka, Godfather Gin, TASI Aromatica Bush Liqueur and the superb Slainte Single Malt Whisky Liqueur.
