“Worth A Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

The staff show a real interest in visitors and wish to convey the unique quality of the island's products and their distilling methods. Not for those who want an inexpensive spirit as these products are hand crafted so there is some premium in the price. Nevertheless the visit is worthwhile just for the tasting and atmosphere and the variety of products is impressive for such a boutique operation.

“Pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

To be quite honest I wasn't that keen to visit KI Spirits, not being a spirit drinker myself but I was pleasantly surprised. The presentation was very informative and Sophie did an excellent job. I even tasted a few spirits ( I did have a cup of coffee) although my husband tried them all and was very impressed and we came away with 3 beautiful bottles. Definitely worth a visit when traveling to KI.

“Fun choices, unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

It is a small shed but has some great fun types of alcohol to chose from. The tasting is free but if you purchase it is a little expensive but a fun unusual treat. We brought a bottle back with us as a gift. The drunken ice cream is good, as described several times here but I think it was 12 dollars and it was a very tiny amount in a plastic cup, so be aware, we were expecting to be able to share...

Hi and Thanks for the greta review of KIS.
We think you may be confused in regards your icecream sale. The Drunken Ice cream we have is made by Hand locally and retails for only $5 for a small tub. We do however sell a very popular Afogatto made with the same ice cream, drowned in Honey and Walnut Liqueur and served with a shot of Espresso coffee. This is served in glass and is priced at $12.
If your ever back on the island drop in and mention this and I will make you a complimentary afogatto.
cheers

“Strong spirits”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We visited KI Spirits as our first stop on the way to the Remarkable rocks ,so just after Breky.its Strong so be warned to make sure you have food before you go.
It's a very quaint distillery and the host is full of charm . it's not for tea totallers as the Vodka in many different flavours goes straight to your knees !
The Chilli Vodka in particularly " Potent". It's worth taking home a bottle or two of this very different selection of Vodka & Gin ,but take your Credit card as they arnt cheap.

“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

What a fantastic, friendly place that should be on everyone's to do list. We were cautious from the look of the place from the outside, but it was fabulous. Lovely people, great gin and liqueurs to try and great to get some info from the locals about what to see and do and where to go. you can take the whole family, everyone is welcome.
