Kangaroo Island Spirits

Australia's First dedicated Gin Distillery

Kangaroo Island Spirits, lovingly referred to by locals as ‘KIS’ was established in 2006 by Jon & Sarah Lark. Australia’s highest awarded, and first dedicated Gin Distillery can be experienced every day in Cygnet River, Kangaroo Island.  The handcrafted quality products take inspiration from the unique Kangaroo Island environment that surrounds them.  Produced and developed on site on Kangaroo Island,  KISpirits continues to lead industry in new products and is becoming widely distributed nationally. The experienced staff enjoy guiding guests through a comprehensive tasting, showing ‘Mary’ the copper still, teaching a gin blending class or making a cocktail to enjoy in the gardens.

Kangaroo Island Spirits’ rustic charmed cellar door is located only 10 mins from Kingscote. It is where passion and science comes together. Each of our products are prepared with care and made using traditional processes. We have a unique range of Gin, Vodka and Liqueurs that have been inspired by the unique environment of Kangaroo Island. This year (2019) KI Ogin, KIS Whisky Barrel gin, KIS Old Tom all received double Gold Medals at the SIP International Spirits Competition, USA.

All our products are available for tasting and purchase. Our wonderful garden is perfect to enjoy a few cocktails, coffees or signature Affogato (KI Drunken ice-cream served with a drizzle of KIS Honey & Walnut liqueur and shot of coffee).
