Destination Cellars bring you the second instalment of our Distant Socialising events for an evening of great drams with our friends at Lark Distillery, where you can enjoy Bill's guided tasting (including two brand new releases) from the comfort of your own home . This virtual tasting event went live at 7pm Wednesday April 29th. Here's the line up of great Lark drams:

1. CLASSIC CASK Single Malt Whisky 43%abv A dram to get the taste buds going. Approachable but complex, our Classic Cask 43% is a whisky made for sharing, celebrating, and enjoying. Handcrafted in the Coal River Valley, it’s a true labour of love from the second it leaves our distillery to the moment the cork is popped and the whisky is enjoyed. Double-distilled in locally crafted copper-pot stills and aged in carefully selected small casks, the Classic Cask features the citrus and butterscotch of the Lark house style with a hint of Tasmanian peat. A great balance of sweet, spicy and savoury elements make this the perfect everyday dram for whisky-lovers on all stages of their whisky drinking journey.

2. NEW! DISTILLER'S SELECTION LD1182 44%abv Single Cask Port Cask In the spirit of exploration, our Distiller’s Selection releases are specially selected by our distillers as whiskies that are intriguing and different, showcasing unique flavours outside of Lark house style. Copper-coloured, rich and intense, LD1182 spent its entire life in a single ex-Seppeltsfield Port Cask. Only 114 bottles produced

3. NEW! LIMITED EDITION SHIRAZ CASK 2020 42%abv The Limited Release Shiraz Cask is the perfect partnership between some of the biggest, most robust red wine casks from South Australia, and rich, oily single malt whisky from our Coal River Valley Distillery in Tasmania. We laid our spirit down in hand-selected Barossa Valley Shiraz Casks and have been watching it slowly mature and develop. The result is a Tasmanian single malt whisky that highlights our famous bold spirit style against the signature red fruit aromas, tannic structure and lingering pepper-leaf finish of Barossa Valley Shiraz from South Australia.

4. Sláinte Whisky Liqueur Sláinte marries our finest single malt whisky with a closely-guarded selection of botanicals to produce a delightfully complex and velvety liqueur. The two are carefully combined to give the right complexity of character, spiciness and sweetness, whilst maintaining the delightful overtones of the whisky. Named for the Gaelic toast to good health.

Armagnac, Destination Cellars, Destination Cellars Events, English Whisky, Indian Whisky, Rare Whisky, Whisky -

On an especially beautiful winter sunny day we gathered at Hadley's Hotel to sample some Armagnac and whisky more suited to the traditional festive season with our Christmas in July event. Starting with 2 Bas-Armagnacs: the 1988 30YO Delord followed by the Tariquet 15YO cask strength, both were well received. We then moved on to the first of 4 whiskies, starting with a new 4 year old distillery in the beautiful Cotswolds region of England. This paddock to bottle dram matured in both ex-bourbon and ex-wine cask was a treat. Then on to the great staple from Overeem the Port Cask Matured, what...
