Episode 96: June 17, 2007

Time to travel down under to Australia, where fall has turned into winter, and it’s whisky season. 15 years ago, Bill and Lyn Lark started Australia’s first malt whisky distillery on a lark (pun intended). Since then, they’ve produced Australia’s first peated single malt whisky, and helped spawn a series of distilleries that have put Australia on the whisky map. In the news, new whiskies from Isle of Jura, Templeton Rye celebrates a “quasquicentennial”, and a lack of rain in Lynchburg, Tennessee has the folks at Jack Daniel’s nervous.
