  • 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.
  • Excellent location and a nice atmosphere both inside and outside at the back. However I wasn't blown away by the whiskey - I tried the basic tasting and all of the whiskeys I tried had the same generic strong flavour, with nothing really popping out at me. Some of the gins they had were a bit more interesting.
  • Excellent whiskey with a great story. Make sure to try the cask strength. Also try the summer gin in a grapefruit and bush spiceberry cocktail.
  • Great tasting room in Hobart. Near the port and in addition to their own products there is an incredibly well stocked selection of whiskey at the bar. Super helpful and knowledgeable staff as well.
