A spirit like no other//

From the humble beginnings of a few craftsmen, Australia’s first dedicated gin distillery has grown to be a showcase of the island.

Taste the essence of a place through ingredients foraged from the land.

Among Kangaroo Island’s untouched cliffs and beaches Australia’s first gin distillery stands. A distillery that proudly bears the name Kangaroo Island Spirits. This island’s ecosystem offers up botanicals that set the stage for distilling the very essence and spirit of this unique place. Spirits that are traditionally crafted and cleverly balanced to infuse the character that the land offers.

It takes creativity, resourcefulness and a pioneering spirit to capture and share an experience such as this with the world. This is ingenuity the Australian way.

With botanicals that abound, perseverance that permeates, and a sense of craft that rises from the soil wherever you tread, Kangaroo Island is the perfect place to taste the varieties and learn the art of gin blending.  The team at KIS craft their spirits, with an honest and enduring dedication to everything found on the island.  Their craft begins with the finest local botanicals, foraged for and grown, right there on the island. The essence of the island is the very foundation for every drop distilled and it’s their connectivity to the land and the inspiration it delivers, that drives them to continually perfect their craft.
