          At Lark Distilling Co., we are passionate about scotch in Tasmania and Bill Lark, our founder, was instrumental in helping the Tasmanian whisky industry flourish. In 1990, he lobbied the government to overturn outdated laws restricting whisky stills. After these laws were repealed, the whisky industry in Australia has boomed with over 200 registered distilleries, with 60 of these operating in Tasmania. You'll find the most distillers operating in Tasmania as the climate is most suitable for producing premium quality whisky.

          Whisky makes for an excellent gift for friends and family because it is seen as a promise to get together in the future. Whisky can be stored indefinitely provided it is kept in a cool and dry location away from light. A wine cellar is ideal for any premium whisky, but if you don't have access to those, a standard kitchen pantry is suitable.

          All whisky pairs well with food, and it goes incredibly well with rich dark chocolate and most fruit-based desserts. If you prefer to enjoy a top-shelf whisky at dinner, then smoked salmon, roasted beef, or pork ribs are sensational.

          What does Tasmanian scotch taste like?

          Almost all scotch in Tasmania is made in a similar way to traditional Scottish whisky. However, due to Tasmania's geographical location and the purity of our ingredients, you may notice that the flavours are slightly different. The flavours you get in most whisky and scotch are developed by the distillers. Flavour is reliant on the grain recipe, maturation barrels, and the distiller's preference. Scotch will stay in barrels until the master distillers decide it is ready; there is no set time.

          Typical flavours you'll encounter with a scotch in Tasmania include smoke (especially with peated whisky), oak, and leather. Other flavours can include vanilla, caramel, butterscotch, and dried fruits. When you taste individual whisky, you'll find that while they are similar, it is the nuances that separate the good from the brilliant.

          One method for understanding the flavours of whisky is to look for tasting notes. You can find tasting notes on the back label of some whisky, and others are available on the distiller's website. At Lark Distilling, you'll find detailed tasting notes on our whisky on the sales pages and by scanning the QR codes included on our tasting sets.

          All tastings of whisky will be subjective based on your personal experience. You may find the flavours of whisky will remind you of other flavours and scents, and the more you've experienced, the more flavour you'll detect in any given whisky. All tasting notes are a guide, but they should help to steer you in the right direction. When choosing a whisky, reading through these notes and finding a whisky that has flavours you like is key to selecting the right one.

          How to pick the right Tasmanian scotch?

          Choosing the right scotch in Tasmania for your tastes can be challenging, especially if you have not tried many Australian whiskies before. Doing quality research is one of the better ways to get started. You can look for recent winners at world-renown whisky awards or follow some well-respected whisky reviewers. Yet, as whisky flavour and quality is highly subjective, it is best to look for a consensus rather than follow one person's opinion.

          Using the opinions of others is an excellent way to choose a quality top-shelf whisky, but the ultimate way to decide is to sample these yourself. Visiting distilleries that offer whisky tasting sessions is a brilliant method for uncovering which Tasmanian scotch is your favourite. When looking for scotch in Tasmania, you'll be treated to over 60 registered distilleries. At Lark Distilling, we operate our cellar door every day of the week, and you're welcome to visit anytime and take part in a whisky flight piloted by our staff.

          If you can't visit our cellar door, ordering a whisky tasting set is the next best option. You'll be offered two or three bottles in our tasting sets, and some will come with a Glencairn whisky glass laser etched with our logo. When you're tasting whisky, you only need to use a small amount (10-15ml), and these bottles are enough for more than a few tastings. Whisky tasting consists of three main steps; appearance, aroma, and palate. By combining these three senses, you'll get a complete picture of everything the whisky has to offer. You can write down what flavours you detected and compare that to the tasting notes provided. Adding a few drops of water to your whisky will help release some of the flavours.

          Where can I buy the best Tasmanian scotch near me?

          Scotch in Tasmania is best sourced directly from the distillery. While you may find many Lark Distilling whisky in retail stores, you may find they do not stock everything currently available. In our online shop, you can choose from all our Australian spirits (including aged whisky, flavoured gin, classic gin, and liqueurs).

          After placing your whisky delivery, our team will carefully pack up your order and send it to our couriers. All orders are processed within one day after they arrive, and they'll arrive at your address in under five days or ten days for regional locations. Orders containing spirits and alcohol will require a signature on arrival, and you may need to provide suitable identification. If you need any assistance in choosing the right scotch, please contact our team, and we'll be happy to assist. Our passionate staff are dedicated to finding the best whisky that suits you.
