My wife and I visited this fun location on our Trafalgar tour. The owner made an entertaining presentation to our group of his various gins and vodkas, all unique to the area, accompanied with numerous samples. No pressure to buy, but the store is a great place to browse around.

Stopped off at KIS after receiving their Gin from the White Possum Club. Great 'cellar door' experience with no pressure to buy. Wonderful Gins, Vodkas and cocktails to try and very friendly staff. Don't miss it!

This is a very good place to stop and sample some of the many varieties of Gin, in particular, other locally made spirits can also be tasted. We enjoyed some of the gin varieties we've never experienced before. The staff are friendly and helpful and you can also stay for a snack in lovely rural surroundings. It is only around... More

This place is a awesome! We love our gin and theirs certainly rivals if not surpasses the big British labels! The vodkas and liqueurs were also fabulous, we could have blown the holiday budget just here! We settled on their fabulous KI gin, the chilli liqueur (so so good) and the slap vodka! 😋 Wonderful service!! Highly recommend! 👏👏

We had a fabulous time trying the different types of gin. The cellar door sales person was fantastic and talked about it's origin and how it was made. We tried the samples available and with the help of a little soda water or squash, they were heavenly. They had these neat little boxes with 3 small bottles of different types... More

We were arriving late but KIS had said they would wait for us...Oh what a fabulous time we had tasting all the Gins and listening to Darri & John tell us about the Gins, flavours and other stories...a beautiful outlook and wonderful appeal...Can't wait for our shipment orders to arrive to reminisce the flavours and fun we had!

I vow and declare I will never buy Blue Sapphire gin again. The different flavours of both gin and vodka are out if this world. Award winning and well deserved!!

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
