The Complete Set of the Limited Festive Lark Christmas Cask Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky Releases
A merry single malt whisky full of yuletide spirit.
Each year, Lark's Head Distiller Chris Thomson carefully selects Tasmanian red wine casks filled with the jus used by local artisan patisserie Jean Pascal for making their renowned Christmas fruit mince pies. These fresh, festive casks are then emptied and transported to Lark Distilling Co. where they are filled with seasonal spirit. The result is Christmas in a glass: nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla custard on the nose give way to gingerbread, citrus peel and liquid plum pudding with lashings of yuletide cheer.

Its rich palate delights with rich toffee. marzipan, and fresh gingerbread, culminating in a heart-warming and buttery finish.
Lark Distillery was established 1992, it's Lark Distillery is located in Cambridge, about a 20 minute drive out of Hobart’s CBD. The founder, Bill Lark, is known as the Godfather of Australian whisky having been inducted into the Hall of Fame at the World Whisky Awards in London in 2015, becoming the first distiller in the southern hemisphere to ever receive such an honour. Bill Lark realised that everything you need for a world-class whisky was in Tasmania – rich fields of barley, an abundance of wonderfully pure soft water, peat bogs and the perfect climate to bring all the ingredients together in a marriage of science, art and passion. The vision of producing Tasmanian malt whisky was born on a trout fishing trip in the highlands of Tasmania.
