When World's Collide: Lark Distillery x Garage Project Creates IPA Cask Finished Whisky


Tasmania's Lark Distillery is collaborating with New Zealand's Garage Project to create a whisky and beer pairing - Lark Fresh IPA Cask and Garage Project Fresh IPA.

Lark Distillery is known for being a pioneer in the Tasmanian whisky scene as reigniting whiskymaking after more than 150 years of prohibition, while Garage Project is New Zealand's most popular craft beer brewery with an intense cult following worldwide for their highly experimental brews.

Garage Project's Fresh IPA casks whilst having collaborated with winemakers prior, will mark its first foray into whiskies with its collaboration with Lark Distillery.

Lime ice cream with subtle grassy hops and buttery toast.


Peaches and cream, mouth watering tropical fruits, and a distinctive malty character.


Long and fresh, the finish finds grapefruit evolving with a hint of banana bread and lychee.
