The Still is the latest whisky experience by local trailblazers, Lark Distillery Co. The venue will feature a collection of over 150 of its finest Tasmanian varieties to be enjoyed by the glass or bottle.

Operating out of the old Mercury Print Room on Argyle Street, visitors enter through a ‘Whisky Hall of Fame’. A retail and tasting section is set up at the front of the precinct, where patrons can enjoy the extensive wine, beer and cocktail list, curated by esteemed Hobart bartenders, Niall Maurici and Campbell Nicol. So even if you’re a whisky newbie, or simply want to enjoy a beverage, there’s plenty on offer.
