Really enjoyed visiting this unique distillery where we were able to taste a variety of unique gins. Each one has native ingredients added to give the gins a special and individual taste. There was also a couple of vodkas and some liqueurs to taste if you aren't a fan of gin. Also a reasonably priced cocktail list and coffee varieties.... More

Kangaroo Island Spirits provided an exceedingly pleasant experience. We enjoyed generous samples of all their products. Unbelieveable. The tastes were so varied and distinctive. Very difficult to choose but the lovely Marysia assisted. Thank you, yet another special highlight on our SA holiday.

We received exceptional service from Marysia, who made us feel very welcome, explained everything clearly and was unrushed even though they were busy. She even went the extra mile to arrange a special bottling of a spirit for us!

Our stop at Kangaroo Island Spirits was an absolute highlight of our trip! We thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere on a Sunday morning, the very friendly owners (thanks for the great chat!) and of course the very special gin and other spirits we were able to taste there. We cherish the bottle we took home with us: it is only... More

The selection of spirits and liqueurs was quite amazing. The flavours were also great. The owners were very generous with the samples. I really liked the flavoured gins and the toppings used on the ice cream. However, I found the price to be a little excessive. I could not justify the value.

Hi and thank you for your positive review. Just to help explain price point issue happy to explain .Our prices are comparable to other Australian Craft Spirits of similar quality and craft production processes. However, its worth noting Australia has the Highest Excise in the OECD. Excise for a typical bottle of our Gin means you pay $27 in excise... More

Although I don't like gin the others in my group enjoyed the tasting of the various spirits on offer. The staff are very friendly and enthusiastic. We enjoyed drinks outside in the bush setting and I can highly recommend the Affogato with walnut & honey liqueur ice cream - Yum!
