Important Information

  • What to Wear

    As part of the tour you’ll be visiting an operational distillery, which requires some precautions to ensure your safety while visiting us. Please note that we require all tour guests to wear closed-toed shoes and long pants (or equivalent) when visiting the distillery.

  • Alcohol Consumption

    You’ll have the opportunity to sample a number of spirits over the course of the tour, so we recommend that you don’t drive directly after the tour. If driving is unavoidable, please let your tour guide know so they can assist you in maintaining a safe blood alcohol content.

  • Private Tours

    If you’d like to visit the distillery with a small group, private and customised tours can be arranged by appointment. Please contact our tour manager on for further information and pricing.

  • Minimum Participants

    Regrettably, we are unable to run standard distillery tours for fewer than 4 participants. If there are insufficient bookings at the time of the tour, we can offer either a full refund or a private guided tasting for attending guests, encompassing an overview of our range and a comprehensive run-through of our production process and history.

Tour Itinerary

Welcome to Lark Distillery

The tour commences at our Cellar Door on Hobart’s Waterfront for a brief welcome (and a whisky) before we travel out to our distillery in the Coal River Valley, just 15 minutes North-East of the city.

From barley to barrel

Once at the distillery you’ll get up close and personal with the entire distillation process; from barley to barrel and everything in between. Discover our unique peat-smoking process, using peat mined from our very own peat bog in the Tasmanian Highlands, and learn the sensory way we distil our spirits, tasting every step of the way.

The final dram

The tour finishes with a tour-exclusive tasting of whisky straight from the cask, surrounded by our future releases in our bond store, before returning to the Cellar Door to conclude with a final dram.

“Ten friends thoroughly enjoyed the few hours we spent with Michael learning about the intricate process which produces an amazing product. We also got to taste some superb whiskeys and really gained an appreciation of what goes into producing such fine drams. Thanks for a fun afternoon!”
