Category Winners at the 2023 World Whiskies Awards

An award is a recognition that something is very good. At LARK we believe we are a team of very good people, who make very good things.

The 2023 World Whiskies Awards  showcase the very best of the international whisky industry. This year, LARK were awarded two category wins, two gold and a number of silver.

The stand out Single Malt category was awarded to our very own LARK Chinotto II Cask Strength 60%, accompanied with a Gold award, acknowledging it's innovation and balance. Chinotto II Cask Strength has all the romance of a bountiful orange harvest in Southern Italy, it boldly delivers undeniable zest with every sip.

Symphony Nº1 is the our first blended malt and is one that keeps delivering. Symphony Nº1 was awarded the Category Winner for the Best Blended Malt and also took home the Gold. Not only did it win the category for best blended malt this year, but it also took out the same category in 2022.

Crowned The Category Winner for the 2023 and 2022 World Whiskies Awards for the Best Blended Malt.

Symphony Nº1 is the first blended malt from the House of Lark, representing a composition of exceptional Tasmanian single malt whiskies.

Crafted from a symphony of complementary casks, Head Distiller Chris Thomson has expertly woven the complexity of American oak bourbon with the balance of sherry and heavier depth of port to form a creamy, oily melody of flavours; a malt whisky that’s full of life from start to finish and carries the un-compromised signature of Lark Whisky—a Tasmanian icon.

Inspired by the teachings of the Godfather of Australian Whisky, our Head Distiller, Chris, has been distilling at Lark since 2007.

"When I go to a bar, I like to order several single malts and an empty glass. And I blend whiskies from all these different distilleries right there at the table. It feels like I’m painting a picture with a palette of different colours.

We’ve been talking about creating a blended malt here at Lark for a very long time. As far as I’m concerned, we’re amongst the few in Australia who can pull it off. We began our journey by looking through our portfolios, and were pleased to find that our Bothwell distillery was producing a whisky with some incredible pineapple and tropical notes - that’s really rare. We added a little bit of sherry cask for sweetness, and fortified for depth. There are notes of other whisky genres in there, too, like bourbon and rye. I wanted to create something that would feel relatable. Something that would feel like ‘home’ to anyone who’d experienced it."
