Lark Distillery is a staple in the Tasmanian whisky scene, and a powerhouse brand driving Australian whisky forward.
In the 1990s Bill Lark lobbied the Australian Government to change laws barring small-batch distilleries from obtaining permits to produce whisky. After successfully lifting the restriction on a minimum still size of 2700 litres, Bill started to produce Australian Single Malt for the first time in over 150 years. Since then, Lark has gone from strength to strength- launching the start of a flourishing Tasmanian whisky industry.
Lark whisky is similar in style to Scotch, however, they use Australian ingredients. Peat is harvested in the Tasmanian Highlands and used to smoke Australian barley. The whisky is then aged in oak casks from Australian wineries— making it a true product of Australia.
The House of Lark is now home to Nant & Overeem Whisky, which contribute barrels towards blended whiskies released by Lark. Lark Distilling is gearing up for huge growth in production & sales, and is constantly releasing new products— interestingly they are the only Aussie Whisky brand listed on the ASX under the ticker LRK.
