Tasmania Whisky & Beer Tour Itinerary:
Lark Cellar Door
Home to the Godfather of Tasmanian Whisky Bill Lark. Here, we have a dram of Lark Classic Cask single malt whisky and learn why Tasmania is now producing some of the finest whisky being produced anywhere in the world today. Your guide takes you through the past, present, and future of distilling in Tasmania.
Tasmania Distillery, Sullivans Cove Whisky
Producer of the World’s Best Single Malt Whisky in 2014 as judged at the World Whisky Awards in London. This distillery really put Tasmania on the map globally and has raised the profile of Tasmanian whisky everywhere. We tour the distillery in full, see the stills in operation, view the bond store, and of course taste three of their best whiskies.
Last Rites Brewery
To finish the our craft beverage tour, we visit one of Tasmania’s newest craft producers the Last Rites Brewery, named as such as it backs onto a graveyard! Here, head-brewer Phil and his team are passionate about their beer, and we taste a paddle of four beers and learn about their brewing process, the malts and hops they like to use, and their seasonal favourites including the Premiers Horn Pale Ale, brewed in part by non-other than Tasmania’s Premier himself!
The tour concludes at Hobart Brewing Company, a hidden gem on Hobart’s waterfront, we finish the tour with a well-earned beer at what is fast becoming one of the local’s favourite after-work tap house locations. With views of the mountain and the setting sun, this is the perfect place to end our tour and for guest to begin their night!
