Hobart has a new home for lovers of fine whiskies


So you love whisky and other fine spirits?

You are heading for Hobart and wondering where you should visit to sample the best of Tasmania's fast-growing artisan distillery industry?

First stop should probably be the brand new The Still, a whisky bar that officially opened its doors last night in downtown Hobart - on the site of former star restaurant Franklin.

The Still is the latest whisky experience from Lark Whisky - the brand where Bill Lark solo kick-started the spirits boom in Tasmania.

The Still, at 30 Argyle Street, features whiskies from every distiller in Tasmania, as well as benchmarks from around the world.

Guests can pop in for a wee dram, or a range of tasting experiences in a cosy cocktail bar-style environment.

The Guided Whisky Tasting Experience ($79) will feature three unique single malt cask finishes, or guests can sample three different Lark whiskies for $38, or three local heroes for $53.

Or opt for a wine/beer cocktail; a Boilermaker, perhaps, or a Look no Ferneaux. The Old Fashioneds are a classic whisky-based cocktail.

And if you happen to have someone in your party who is not a whisky drinker, the wine list features star Tasmanian names including Apogee, Stefano Lubiana, Freycinet Vineyard, Havilah and Waterton Hall, among others.

There is also a good range of beers, ciders, bar snacks and gins.

The Still is home to a ‘Whisky Hall of Fame,’ as well the a dedicated tasting bar and whisky lounge.

The new venue showcase the state's finest whiskies, with 150 rare Tassie tipples available by the glass or bottle.

"The Still is a celebration of what makes the Tasmanian spirits industry one of the best in the world,” said Dan Knight, head of hospitality at Lark Distillery.

The Still is open 11am-9pm Sunday-Wednesday and 11am-midnight Thursday-Saturday
