When it comes to the best whisky in the world, experts agree Lark Whisky is in the top four. In 2020, the illustrious International Whiskey and Spirits Competition nominated Lark Distilling Co. as one of just four candidates for the Worldwide Whisky Producer Of The Year, the only distillery in Tasmania to be shortlisted.
What Is The International Whiskey and Spirits Competition?
Some call it the Olympics for whisky distillers. Started in 2010, it calls itself, “the world’s most-followed whisky competition,” with the goal to, “bring the best whiskies from around the world to be tasted and rated…” Since 2015, Lark is one of the few distilleries in Tasmania raking in the gold, silver and bronze medals for its Tasmanian whisky every year.
How Is The Best Whisky Distiller Judged?
An esteemed panel of experts from over 30 countries blind-taste hundreds of spirits from the best single malt whisky to the best gin, one by one. They later discuss their findings with the other panellists, and all the best whisky scoring a 90 and over are then re-assessed by the judges to ensure their findings are accurate.
Of All The Distilleries In Tasmania
While Lark Distilling Co. wasn’t surprised to be nominated for the Whisky Producer Of The Year award, we were certainly honoured and humbled.
