Tarraleah Lodges Library Bar within the Lodge boasts more than 155 fine malt whiskies from around the world. We offer visitors the opportunity to take a guided tasting with the Keepers of the Whisky Keys. A truly great opportunity for those with a taste for malt. Participants enjoy 6 tastes of whisky from across the word which takes about an hour – even longer if your tongue loosens on that 3rd dram at 60%. On request we can also arrange a Tasmanian specific whisky tasting which includes some of the world’s best whiskies, all made on this little island of ours.
If you would like to participate, please book directly with us in advance by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (03) 6289 0111.
