The world of whiskies is a constantly expanding landscape and the innovations behind LARK are no exceptions.  Over the past 30 years we have continued to build on our foundations in delivering the best whisky Tasmania has to offer and we’re proud to share everything we’ve learnt with the rest of the world. Our passion and commitment in creating the finest quality Tasmanian whisky is stronger than ever and Symphony Nº1 is the latest in our core line-up.

Symphony Nº1 envelopes our creativity, innovation and exploration in expanding our whisky offering. It’s our first blended malt which was recently crowned the Best Australian Blended Malt at the 2022 World Whisky Awards.

Our Head Distiller, Chris Thomson, expertly wove the complexity of American oak bourbon with the balance of sherry and a heavier depth of port. Forming a creamy, oily melody of flavours; a malt whisky that’s full of life from start to finish and carries the un-compromised signature we’re known for.

 Likewise, to the ever-expanding world of whiskies, the way in which we enjoy them is also adapting. But there are some classics that simply don’t need an introduction, nor the need to update. And Symphony Nº1 is the perfect blended malt to highlight each of these classics. Symphony Nº1 is one of the most versatile whiskies in our cabinet. Enjoy it neat, over ice or in a classic cocktail below! 



CLASSIC WHISKY MANHATTAN
One of the finest and oldest whisky cocktails available

60ml - Symphony Nº1
30ml – Sweet Vermouth
3-4 Dashes of Bitters


Simply combine all ingredients over ice and chill, stirring well. Strain and enjoy! Add a cherry to top it off !

 

OLD-FASHIONED


The easiest way to elevate a cocktail with Symphony Nº1

60ml - Symphony Nº1
1 Sugar cube
3-4 dashes of bitters
Orange Peel for Garnish


Simply coat the sugar cube with bitters and muddle it into a paste. Pour over Symphony Nº1 and add ice to chill. Add a fresh orange peel and enjoy! !

 

WHISKY SOUR


A clear staff favourite, the whisky sour is a classic cocktail that always delivers!

60ml - Symphony Nº1
25ml - Fresh Lemon Juice
25ml – Sugar Syrup
1 – Egg White (optional)
Lemon Peel or Cherry for Garnish


Sugar Syrup – If you don’t have sugar syrup you can simply make your own using sugar and boiling water. Simply mix 1 cup of water with 1-2 cups of sugar. Once it’s dissolved, allow to cool and bottle it up, ready to mix with your next cocktail.

A classic Whisky Sour often includes egg white as shown in our version. To do this simply add one egg white with the Symphony Nº1, fresh lemon juice and sugar syrup in a shaker and shake for around 30 seconds until it foams and is well mixed. Then simply pour over ice and enjoy! Adding an egg white tends to tame the tartness and makes the drink a little smoother.

To make the Whisky Sour without egg white simply add the Symphony Nº1, fresh lemon juice and sugar syrup in a shaker with ice. Shake well and pour into a glass over fresh ice. Add your chosen garnish and enjoy!

This is essentially a Whisky Sour topped with soda! Simply make the whisky sour above (without egg) and your chosen soda for a refreshing summer drink.

**Most of all, remember to always drink responsibly!**

Crowned The Category winner for the 2022 World Whiskies Awards - Rest of the World: Blended Malt Whisky No Age Statement.

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."
