Lark Distillery might not be the first of its kind in Tasmania, but prior to 1992 when Lark Distillery opened, the last time Tasmania had a whiskey distillery was 1839. Though 150 years may have passed, Tasmania still produces ingredients that go into premium whiskey, and as staff will tell you when taking a tour of the Lark Distillery grounds, it’s the premium, fresh, island-grown ingredients that make the whiskey a smashing success. Even if you don’t take part in the tour, Hobart travelers can enjoy a drink at the popular cellar door, where 150 different whiskeys create a premium tasting experience unrivaled by any in town.
The Lark Distillery in on the Hobart waterfront and conveniently located downtown. The three-hour distillery tour begins at the waterfront and then travels 20 minutes to where the actual distilling of whiskey takes place. The distillery is closed on the second Monday of every month, and tour participants must be 18 years old to sample the drinks on the tour.
Did You Know? If you aren’t in the mood for sipping whiskey, the Lark Distillery also serves gin, beer, cider, and coffee.
