DARK LARK: The First Winter Release From The House of LARK.

Indulge in the Sinful Single Malt of DARK LARK.

Emerging through a misty skied Tasmanian winter, this DARK LARK release opens a portal to our island at the bottom of the world. This rich and sinful single malt whisky will light a fire in your soul. Indulge in dark cocoa drenched with luxuriant fruits, delving into the guilty pleasures of spun toffee and toasted tobacco.

Stepping into the depth of Tasmanian winter, the mood is cold, dark and oppressive. The crowds move, huddling inside by the fire, hibernating. It takes time to pass. So, what we do, we find ways to break out. Search ways to find warmth, togetherness, and community. To do that, we throw parties, dinner parties, house parties, gathering around the fire pit. Getting together to indulge. Celebrating the now, finding joy in a dark place.

For Lark, that’s what this first Winter Release represents; outside the bottle is a brutal, midnight black, inside a party, a fire of happiness pouring out. A golden whisky hidden within an exclusive black bottle silhouette.

“Dark Lark is a statement, a piece of art moving Lark from the bar cart to the dinner party.”

Chris Thomson, Head Distiller

“For me, this new release brings a temporary spring in a cold a long Tasmanian winter. This whisky has been created from my own deep personal experience, bringing friends together in the colder months, to shake off the winter chills, and bring happiness. Complex, but approachable, this is a whisky for the Whisky lover and whisky new-comer. Dark Lark is a statement, a piece of art moving Lark from the bar cart to the dinner party.” Chris Thomson, Head Distiller.
