About Bill Lark | While fly fishing with his father-in-law in the central highlands of Tasmania, Bill Lark realised that everything you need for a world-class whisky was in Tasmania: rich fields of barley, an abundance of wonderfully pure soft water, highland peat bogs, and the perfect climate to bring all the ingredients together in a marriage of science, art and passion. Surrounded by barley fields and the gentle flowing of the Clyde River, Bill remarked to Max, “I wonder why there isn’t anyone making malt whisky in Tasmania”.
That simple conversation between Bill Lark and his father-in-law became a history-defining moment. Bill’s heart, passion, and adventurous spirit in overturning a century-and-a-half long ban on distilling sparked not only a whisky distillery, but an entire industry, and it's this spirit that continues to drive the industry to this day.
