This single cask bottling celebrates the friendship of Bill Lark and John Grant, a bond that would change the landscape of the whisky industry in Australia forever
From Scotland to Tasmania. A piece of history, celebrating a lifelong friendship between John Grant and Bill Lark. It was a phone call that shaped the Australian whisky industry, and helped perfect LARK’s award winning whisky, 30 years on. A rich 1992 Glenfarclas Single Cask Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
It was over a dram of Glenfarclas 15, many years ago, that Bill and Lyn Lark remarked that if they were ever to make a single malt, they would hope to have it resemble what they were enjoying at that moment. Rather fortuitously, and only a short time before the opening of their now legendary distillery, Bill received a phone call from Scotland. It was John Grant from Glenfarclas. The two talked whisky for many hours, and a lifelong friendship was formed. One that would transcend oceans, decades and establish an unbreakable bond between the Glenfarclas and The House of LARK names. A long, luscious single malt matured in traditional port casks, with a touch of sherry and bourbon. Finished in Glenfarclas casks from the Scottish Highlands.
Glenfarclas 28 Year Old Single Malt Whisky. Glenfarclas is one of the most celebrated whisky distilleries on the planet. Family owned and operated for five generations, tradition is something that runs through their blood. The direct fire stills impart a rich and recognisable flavour on their spirit, while also being matured in the finest Spanish Oloroso casks, creating a moment of true indulgence.
This bottling celebrates the friendship of Bill Lark and John Grant, having been distilled in 1992, the birth year of Lark, then left to mature and blossom through the decades.
