Big names combine on a drink with a difference

Two of the star names of the Australian drinks industry have combined to create a special limited edition whisky. 

Tasmania's Lark Distilling Co. has paired with Seppeltsfield winery in the Barossa to craft the Tokay 100 Rare Cask release, which will cost $1000 a bottle. 

The new release is part of Lark's Rare Cask Series, and is believed to be the only Tokay Rare Cask release of its kind. 

Only 934 bottles have been made. 

Chris Thomson, head distiller at Lark in Hobart, says: “The release of this rare drop is a milestone for Lark and [will be] a coveted offering for whisky enthusiasts. 

"We approached this series with the promise of creating something unique and unforgettable - the ultimate collectors item. 

"Our relationship with Seppeltsfield Winery has opened the door to some of the rarest fortified wine in the world., and we discovered and sniffed out these tokay casks from Seppeltsfield’s treasure trove of museum fortifieds in the Barossa. 

"They have nurtured and matured Seppeltsfield’s fortified sweet muscadelle, resulting in an intense and powerful whisky infusion.” 

The whisky has been finished in barrels that until recently have held a blend of museum tokay, containing a  parcel from the 1922 vintage.  Lark then married the whisky with two other barrels. 

Fiona Donald, chief winemaker at Seppeltsfield, said: “We are thrilled to continue to work closely with the team at Lark to develop this one-of-a-kind whisky."
