  • Lark was one of my main reasons for heading down to Hobart in the first place. Although at the time they were renovating their brewery and couldn't do tours I was personally taken through most of their space and each individual product at at only the cost of the tasting. They are extremely knowledgeable about the various other distilleries and where you would best be suited to go. They hooked me up with two tours and various other bars as well.
  • If you are passionate about single malt whisky then this video a must visit place in Hobart. Make sure you have some money on hand because you will be spending a fair bit in pursuit of your whisky passion but it is worth every cent. You must try a tasting paddle of larks own products as they are as good as anything else in the world. Even better book in for one of their awesome distillery tours. Slàinte
  • This place is a must visit for the spirit/beer/wine drinker. We stopped off here on a pub crawl and spent almost 2 hours due to the variety of cool options. The staff here are well educated on their alcoholic drinks and made it fun and easy to choose options. Its right next to the Mawsons Hut too, so ticking off both those boxes on your stay to Hobart is a must. Will come back for sure.
  • Great whisky. Old world atmosphere. Loved the experience. Knowledgeable staff good help with whisky tastings.
  • Great place to sit and enjoy fine whiskies to good music. Knowledgeable staff behind the bar. Highly recommend
