Boilermaker House Whisky Bar Series Limited Release

Boilermaker House Whisky Bar Series Limited Release

With this whisky bar exclusive, Boilermaker house wanted something out of the ordinary. A whisky that will challenge what enthusiasts believe is possible or even imaginable. Larks head distiller, Chris Thomson, is no stranger to this style and whisky innovation is something that Lark consider their bread and butter.

Boilermaker House chose LDF811 as their exclusive whisky, a cask that has an interesting story to tell. Made up of three different casks of mature Coal Valley malt, from American Oak, Sherry and Port, then married together in a Buffalo Trace Bourbon cask.

If this cask wasn't interesting enough, all parties involved still wanted to turn it up a notch. So, much like it started life, LDF811 was split in to three casks, Rum, Shiraz and Oloroso. The result is a bustling whisky for adventurous people, it is certainly not for the faint of heart or the malt traditionalist. We invite you to experience the boundless freedom that this whisky represents, tied together with skill, innovation and passion.

Distillery Notes

The vision of producing a Tasmanian malt whisky was born in 1989 on a trout fishing trip in the highlands of Tasmania. Where Bill Lark remarked “I wonder why there isn’t anyone making malt whisky in Tasmania?”

This question stuck with Bill, as well as his equally curious wife Lyn, leading them to inquire into the details of obtaining a distillation license. This inquiry lead to the discovery of Australia’s antiquated distillation laws and eventually to their amendment. Thus, in 1992, the Lark household became the first Australian distillery to produce single malt spirit in 154 years.

Situated in the heart of the famous Coal River Valley, the Lark site accommodates a 1800L Wash Still and a 500L Spirit Still, both running 7 days a week.

Fresh water sphagnum peat is mined from Lark’s own peat bog in the Tasmanian Highlands, transported to the distillery, and used every day to smoke their Australian sourced barley - which is used to brew the wash on site. Oak casks are individually selected from Australia’s finest fortified producers to age the single malt spirit. The result is a rich and viscous spirit, with the house style of citrus on butterscotch
