The Still, Hobart’s Newest Luxury Whisky Experience

Drink, Sydney, Travel / 1 September 2021

Love whisky? Lark Distilling Co is giving you every reason to plan that trip to Tasmania.

We’ve never had more time on our hands to plan the perfect vacation. With the recent talk about international travel opening up next year, our trip to Tasmania this summer doesn’t seem out of reach. Start planning your foodie pit-stops including Hobart’s newest whisky experience, The Still. Lark Distilling Co has created a unique experience that’s set to highlight Tasmania’s world-class whisky industry. From late this Spring, the new bar will be serving up only the most impressive local whiskies alongside a wealth of knowledge from the bar experts.

The Tasmanian distilling industry has flourished over the last 30 years. Lark founder and godfather of Australian whisky Bill Lark saw the potential to create a single malt whisky in pristine Tasmanian conditions and serve it to the community. The Still will be a place whisky enthusiasts from all over the world can gather to explore the magical world of whisky, learn about its origins and creation process, and take home a bottle after finding their preference at a tasting experience.

The bar is housed in the old Mercury Print Room in central Hobart. Inside, guests will be greeted by the Tasmanian whisky hall of fame, a shelf championing local distilleries including the Lark. The space has two main areas including the retail and tasting section featuring an intimate whisky lounge with handmade furniture (something else Tasmania does incredibly well) by Hobart designer Scott Van Tuil. The crowning glory is the original Lark Distillery Co copper still used by Bill himself.

Dan Knight, Head of Hospitality at Lark DistilleryCo says: “The Still will be an experience like no other. Whether you are newly curious or extremely passionate about the Tasmanian spirits community, this space will be perfect for your exploration into world-class, local whisky”.

Whether you’ve had your sites on Tasmania for a while or this has sparked your interest, start planning your foodie trip along the coastline and mark a few days to explore Hobart and its newest addition, The Still.
