How Lark & Garage Project made Fresh IPA Cask

Chris Thomson head distiller Lark Distillery

Collaboration between different drinks producers is vast these days, and in this episode you’re going to hear about one of the more interesting projects.

Lark Distillery has just released Fresh IPA Cask, a single malt Tasmanian whisky finished in casks that have previously held Fresh IPA brewed by New Zealand’s Garage Project.

How do you maintain the freshness and vibrancy of the Fresh IPA beers after filling them into a barrel, and then impart that into a whisky?

That’s what I was trying to get my head around in this episode, produced in partnership with Lark.

Head distiller Chris Thomson and assistant blender Josh Wilson will explain how they achieved this sorcery in just a moment.

And you’re hear also from Pete Gillespie, co-founder of Garage Project, who gives us some background on the Fresh IPA series and explains why he’s so fond of collaborations such as this one.
