LARK's Celebrates 30 Years of Tasmanian Whisky at Pontville
Tasmania’s first licensed distillery, celebrates three decades of award winning Tasmanian whisky, under the stars at their Pontville Estate.
The HOUSE of LARK officially marked thirty years of crafting world-class and uniquely Tasmanian whisky. We celebrated in style at our new whisky village in Pontville with an evening under the stars, hosted by the Tasmanian Whisky and Spirits Association, Lark Distillery, and State Growth. Founding Fathers of Tasmanian Whisky, Bill Lark and Patrick Maguire, reflected on three decades of growth, challenge, and global success, while also using the milestone to honour the community and environment that has made the journey possible.
200 guests from across Australia came together to celebrate 30 years of exceptional Tasmanian whisky. The night started by honouring the Mumurimina Country that LARK at Pontville resides on, with a Welcome to Country and traditional smoking ceremony followed by a wild Tasmanian dinner, with entrees curated by renowned local chefs Analiese Gregory and Jamie Yates, as well as Aboriginal kitchen Palawa Kipli. LARK poured Origins Single Malt Whisky, a fitting dram to toast the occasion.
The evening was written in the stars, with the first ever drone show in Tasmania lighting up the sky. Choreography rich in colour, dynamic movement and narration, the drone art told the story of Tasmanian's distilling industry with 60 drones and more than 16 million colours.
