The food, drinks and atmosphere were all breathtaking, but what really made our experience memorable was the staff. Our kids saw a gin flight and wanted one, so even though it's not on the menu, the staff created a tasting paddle for the kids with sodas, juices and mixers. They hand-wrote what they'd put together for the kids and took them through it as if they were adults. So much love went into it and the kids were so pleased. 10/10 would recommend.

Beautiful gardens to enjoy the delectable gins and liquors. Loved the Mulberry Gin so much we bought two bottles. Staff are knowledgeable about each gin / spirits and very friendly. A very beautiful setting to enjoy a cocktail with loved ones or friends. A must visit.

I have tried KI Spirits before but my friends hadnt so I drove. They had fun trying the gins and the liqueurs. Lots of fun sitting outside by a heater (or with a blanket over you).

The use of local botanicals from Kangaroo Island makes a visit to this local craft distillery a must when on the island. Add a unique craft gin to your collection.

This was a really lovely spot to relax and chat with friends, whilst tasting gin.
Lovely surroundings and atmosphere
The gin was great.
So great we bought many bottles between my group.
Very disappointed to then go to the local sip and save in Kingscote to find the same gin $13 cheaper per bottle !
We supported local only to be left angry. Not cool.

Hi Kell, I sincerely apologise for your experience. Unfortunately once we have sold our product to retail outlets we have no control over the pricing. If you wish to contact me directly at kylie@kangarooislandspirits.com.au, I would be more than happy to discuss this issue further. Warm Regards, Kylie

Wow, fantastic experience, I wish we had more time to participate in one of the gin classes. There is always next time! We were lucky with the weather and the open fire presented a relaxing gin tasting experience with a recommendation to try the flammkuchen from the food truck - delicious. My favourite was the Wild Gin - all kinds of awesomeness in a bottle!

Popped in really quickly. Knew what we wanted to buy. Had a taste of the gin, loved it, bought a bottle and left. The ladies were very friendly. Really lovely place that we know we could have spent more time at relaxing and taking in the atmosphere.

Great location, very well presented. Some nice gin and liquiors, on the expensive side and you can only purchase large bottles.

The lady doing the demonstration was very curt and abrupt, which did put me off purchasing in the end
