Lark Unveils their Most Experimental Single Malt Yet.

Lark Unveils their Most Experimental Single Malt Yet.

Inspired by the breathtaking Italian summers and big food-filled gatherings with family and friends, award-winning Lark Distilling Co. has unveiled their most experimental single malt whisky to-date, Chinotto Cask II. 

Built upon the foundations of award-winning 2021 Chinotto Cask, the 2022 Chinotto Cask brings an undeniable zest that is best shared and enjoyed with friends. Lark carefully seasoned whisky casks with handcrafted Coal Valley Chinotto to create their most experimental and innovative release so far that is a wonderful marriage of Lark’s classic highland peat and the bittersweet, citrusy cola flavours of a cool, refreshing Chinotto.

 

Lark’s Head Distiller Chris Thomson is excited to share Chinotto Cask II with the world. 

“Big, bold, and full of life. I get so excited every time I taste this whisky because there is not another like it. I get to see people try this whisky for the first time and it brings me joy when I get to see their faces light up,” Thompson said. 

“Last year's Chinotto release got a 95/100 - our second-highest score ever - at the world whisky awards and we hope this release is even better again.”

To bring the inspiration of Chinotto Cask II to life Lark has partnered with South Australian, Italian restaurant Fugazzi Bar & Dining Room who have created a special cocktail, the Chinotto Cask Manhattan.

The Fugazzi Bar & Dining Room team have shared the exclusive recipe for the Chinotto Cask Manhattan so you can enjoy Lark in style at home. 

 

Chinotto Cask Manhattan:

60ml Lark Chinotto Cask

15ml Sweet Vermouth

15ml Dry Vermouth

2 dashes of bitters

Stirred down

Flame Orange for garnish

 

There’s no need to travel all the way to Italy for a taste of summer, get a crew together and make your own Italian summer with Chinotto Cask II - salute!

Chinotto Cask II Release

Highland peat married with bitter sweet citrus cola; it's a classic flavour with all the romance of southern Italy. Bitter toffee and smoked orange roll off the tongue with every sip, this 2022 Chinotto Release is a vivacious single malt living up to its namesake in every way.

Lark Whisky casks were liberally seasoned with our own handcrafted Coal Valley Chinotto, meticulously distilled and aged with the same love and patience as the original 2021 Release which was awarded a 95 at the International Wine and Spirits Competition.

This experimental single malt is best enjoyed neat or over ice - with a flavour profile this sublime, no other ingredients are necessary.

Chinotto Cask Release is testament to Lark's continued dedication to creating the world's most innovative whisky. Born in the 1950's, Chinotto is Italy's most beloved sparkling drink, with distinct bitter orange flavours from the citrus oils of the myrtle-leaved Chinotto oranges of sun-kissed Southern Italy. We created our very own Chinotto at our Tasmanian distillery, which we have used to liberally season our casks, resulting in a single malt bursting with Italian citrus and all the romance of a Tuscan holiday.

Salute!
