  • This place is by far one of the best visits in Hobart. Distillers of fine spirits and purveyors of many things whiskey! The atmosphere is earthy, which is excellent and apropos considering their distilling process. Do yourself a favour, do the tasting tour. Learn the process and discover the rich history! Lark Distillery will not disappoint!
  • Nice little cellar door. Incredibly vast selection of whisky and other spirits. Had the Lark Tasting Flight which was pretty nice. Whiskies were from a similar taste profile just one at cask strength which was therefore stronger. Whisky liqueur had a mainly liquorice taste with orange after notes. A little on the pricey side but in a good location and with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Not the actual Distillery though.
