We all need a little pick-me-up right now, and thanks to Lark Distillery we have a Whisky Tasting Set to giveaway to one lucky reader to help brighten their week.

Did you know Tasmania is ideally situated to make malt whisky? Me neither. And if that’s the only thing I’ll learn today then call me content.

150 years after the last licensed Tassie distillery closed its doors, it took a whisky lover on a fishing trip in the highlands of Tasmania to realise the environment was perfect for making malt whisky. That discovery and the resulting pursuit is what led Lark to become Tasmania’s first single malt whisky since 1839.

In 1992, the Lark household became the first Australian distillery to produce single malt spirit in 154 years. The spirit continued to grow and evolve, leading to the creation of a rich Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky aged in small casks. Finally in 1998, after years in the making, from Bill and Lyn’s kitchen table to Davey Street Bond Store, the first Lark Distillery Single Malt Whisky was released commercially.

But enough about history, let’s get into the good stuff.

For your chance to win this Whisky Tasting Set from Lark Distillery – worth $159.99 – all you have to do is fill in the form below which will sign you up for our Food & Drink Observer and The Dad Observer newsletters. It’s that easy.

The lucky winner will receive Lark’s ultimate tasting set: a collection of Lark Distillery’s flagship Classic Cask single malt, first ever blended malt SYMPHONY Nº1, and wild and distinctive Cask Strength single malt. The 3 x 100ml set features some of Lark’s finest whiskies AND you’ll also get a laser-etched Lark Glencairn Glass.


Each whisky is labour of love from the second the spirit leaves our stills to the moment the cork is popped. Each of the whiskies in our whisky gift set has a complex variety of flavours that our team crafts from barrel to bottle.

Our Classic Cask 43%, Lark’s signature Tasmanian whisky, is a timeless single malt with hints of orange peel, vanilla bean, Christmas cake and golden syrup. Once you take a sip, the sweetness of butterscotch, the tartness of grapefruit and the earthiness of cloves will hit your tongue. The butterscotch and citrus linger while the finish is a smoky strand of Tasmanian peat.

SYMPHONY Nº1 40.2%, is the brainchild of Head Distiller Chris Thomson. “I’ve always found a real joy in bringing different whiskies together. I think each distillery kind of has a fingerprint,” says Thomson. The blended malt has a nose of ripe mangos, tangerines and toasted pineapple. The finish is smooth and warm with fresh fruit and citrus for a balanced dram of Tasmanian whisky.

Cask Strength 58%, fondly referred to as “Liquid Gold” by whisky fans. Like Classic Cask, it leads with an oaky aroma of orange peel, butterscotch, cinnamon and nutmeg. Its huge port cask influence gives in an intense vanilla and Christmas cake sweetness as well as maple syrup and stewed fruits. There’s a hint of Tasmanian peat smoke that carries through to where toffee, spices and citrus shine through for a warm, smooth finish.

Keen to try some of Tassie’s finest? Fill in the form below and you’ll be in the running.
