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 has been inspired by the unique environment of Kangaroo Island. Our Old Tom Gin won Australia’s Best Gin at the Australia’s Distillers Awards 2016 and a Gold Medal at the SIP International Spirits Competition, USA 2017.


All our products are available for tasting as well as for 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).
