Lark Distillery wins Telstra Tasmanian Business of the Year!
And as the icing on the cake, it also won Small Business of the Year. Not bad for venture that started off in a typical suburban home in 1991. It’s even more proof (as if you needed it) that Tasmanian whisky is taking on the world. “The Scots have been making whisky for more than 500 years, the Japanese for 90, and Australia for 22.” Troy Trewin, Lark’s CEO, said in his acceptance speech, which you can watch here. “Now the world’s hearing about the great whiskies we’re making here down in Tasmania. “Lark is a testament to how an industry can grow when competitors don’t work against each other, but support each other.” Now that’s something worth raising a glass to.
