Tasmania hit the ground running after 150 or so years with no distilleries. Thanks to the work of Bill Lark, there are world-class whiskies being produced right here on our doorstep. We held a masterclass, showed off some re-vamped classic cocktails and enjoyed a whisky themed dinner, all with a backdrop of roaring fires, eclectic tunes and fine company.
Hygge? The Danish invented the word but I think Tasmania has perfected it…
