We passed this place numerous time. Glad we eventually stopped in. Different gin/spirits for different folks. The affogato was amazing!

This is not about a gin making tour. This small shack houses a great little tasting venue. We sampled a few of the KI gins before retiring to a table outside in the evening sun to enjoy an affagato. This was a highlight of our visit to the island. Make a detour!

Called in to buy some of the delicious gin and ended up having a tasting which was fantastic. The girl doing it was super knowledgable and even showed us the plants that flavour the gin. Beautiful stuff and friendly staff. Absolutely loved the rustic theme of the cellar door, please don't ever change!

Based on its production of specialty gins, this attraction provides tasting of its various products (mostly without charge). Vodka and special liqueur style drinks, e.g. lemoncello, are also produced and available for tasting. Single bottles and mixed packs are available for purchase. Platters of local produce is available to eat in the grounds. Remember to have a nominated driver!!

KIS is definitely worth a visit. Try and avoid holiday seasons... This place is very small inside and awkward for tastings. However they have created part of the yard into a cool little place to sit and relax They have great gins and liqueur plus fantastic coffee.

What an enjoyable afternoon, excellent tasting and a delicious affogato in the shady garden. We purchased award winning gin and limoncello which we enjoyed in our fabulous accommodation at the Cliff House.

We spent three lovely days on Kangaroo Island and ended up visiting KIS on all days! The first was to sample their fabulous gins and liqueurs. Staff were great explaining all the different gins and botanicals involved in the distilling process. We then popped in each day to sit in the garden while enjoying a beautifully made G&T. Great way... More

We visited Kangaroo Island Spirits on a beautiful sunny day and had an interesting tasting of five different Gins inside a cosy, buzzy little shop, which also sells a variety of local produce. Staff were really welcoming and ambience was lively. Finished off our visit with a nice cup of coffee in the garden. Well worth a visit!

My wife and I visited this fun location on our Trafalgar tour. The owner made an entertaining presentation to our group of his various gins and vodkas, all unique to the area, accompanied with numerous samples. No pressure to buy, but the store is a great place to browse around.
