Lark Distillery Unveils Its New Legacy

The Tasmanian whisky is intense and ultra-exclusive.

By Terry Christodoulou 02/02/2021

Tasmania’s Lark Distilling Co. is set to unveil an unprecedented single malt with an extraordinary heritage— Legacy. This 19-year-old Tasmanian single cask whisky captures the essence of a legacy created by Bill Lark.

The inaugural Legacy will be released as two single casks which have been under the watchful eye of Lark for 19 years.  The result is two single casks containing the rarest, oldest single malts to come from Lark.

“My first reaction to tasting this release was one of sheer joy. To think that we could lay a whisky down 19 years ago, in our infancy in Australia and to come out with a whisky like this that is so drinkable but yet so rich and intense in flavour is a great milestone,” says Bill Lark, founder of Lark Distilling Co.

Of the first barrel, nondescriptly labelled Legacy HHF582B, expect aromas of Medjool dates, fig, green olive, and gingerbread dough and finishes with subtle hints of coconut, cloves, and toasted walnut. In contrast, the second barrel of Legacy HHF585A begins on the nose like an old attic filled with nostalgic memories of salted caramels, liquorice, and peppermint ice-cream, elegantly finishing with dark chocolate, coffee, nougat, and nutmeg.

Getting your hands on the release isn’t as straight forward as walking into your local. The release will require those with a thirst for this exclusive release to enter the ballot system commencing March 8, 6am AEST until March 14, 3pm AEST. Winners of the ballot will then have the opportunity to purchase the rare liquors – valued at $1950 each.
