Its unique flavour is the result of years of dedication to the art of distillation, in the pristine environment of Tasmania, Australia.

Lark Quiet Cannon Rum is crafted in Tasmania by Lark Distillery—the home of the original Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky.

The vision of producing a Tasmanian malt whisky was born in 1989 on a trout fishing trip in the highlands of Tasmania. Bill’s father-in-law Max produced a wonderful bottle of single malt, and as they enjoyed a drink in the park at Bothwell surrounded by Georgian buildings, barley fields and the gentle flowing of the Clyde River, Bill remarked to Max:

“I wonder why there isn’t anyone making malt whisky in Tasmania?” -BILL LARK (Founder)

This question stuck with Bill, leading him 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. The spirit continued to grow and evolve, leading to the creation of a rich Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky aged in small casks. Finally in 1998, after years in the making, the first Lark Distillery Single Malt Whisky was released commercially.

The Lark Distillery has seen substantial growth over the years, but the commitment to producing a quality Tasmanian Single Malt, Rum and other spirits has stayed the same. Now situated in the heart of the famous Coal River Valley, the Lark site has grown to accommodate a 1800L Wash Still and a 500L Spirit Still, both running 7 days a week.

This release of the Lark Quiet Cannon Rum is the oldest age statement released to date.
