About Whisky: Lark, Nant, Hellyers Road

Tasmanians never set out to become an island of whiskey producers, but the clean and fresh produce available there helps craft whiskies of distinction. Tasmania grows some of the world's best brewing barley, its highlands abound in rich peat and its water is soft, clean and pure. The temperature and humidity also create a climate well suited to the maturation of fine malt whisky. Hellyers Road Distillery, Nant Estate and Tasmania Distillery are now getting the attention of whisky connoisseurs. Hobart's Lark Distillery offers the Ultimate Tasmanian Malt Whisky Experience Tour - where you become a whisky distiller. Over the course of four days you can learn the process from fermentation to distillation and create a 5-gallon barrel of single malt whisky to take home with you. The Lodge at Tarraleah also boasts 120 varieties of whisky in its bar, the ultimate for any whisky lover. http://www.nantdistillery.com.au/index.php?module=pagesetter&func=viewpub&tid=2&pid=12 http://hellyersroaddistillery.com.au/ http://www.larkdistillery.com.au/
