#TheRevolutionRelease | Volume 8

2009

“The first time I came across Bill Lark was on the 23rd September, 2009. I was cycling between Glenkinchie distillery, where I was a tour guide, and the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, where I was a Bartender, when three familiar faces and one I had never seen before towered out of my peripheral vision, causing me to stop and stare. In 150ft high projections on the Salisbury Crags in Edinburgh were the faces of William Grant; The Glenfiddich Stag; Masetaka Taketsuru and someone who looked a lot like Charles Darwin. Confused, I cycled on.

I was about to ask my colleagues if they knew who was on the crags with these figures of whisky royalty when in walked Chris Thomson [head distiller at Lark Distillery] to tell us all about Bill and Tasmanian whisky. It was the first I’d heard about Tasmania and their whisky, and it was the start of a very long friendship with Chris, and of course Bill. The Tasmanian Whisky Industry shut my bar down that night sharing drams, stories and fairytales, portraying a friendliness that ultimately drew me across the world in 2014 to start my own Tasmanian whisky adventure.”

— Craig Johnstone, Distillery Manager
