Kangaroo Island Spirits, Cygnet River
Kangaroo Island Spirit “KIS” is Australia's first dedicated gin distillery. We produce handcrafted quality spirits and liqueurs inspired by the unique botanicals of Kangaroo Island.
The KIS Story began in 2002, when Jon and Sarah Lark married and set out to establish Australia’s first dedicated gin distillery, where they wanted to do things properly, the traditional way.
One of the appealing things about gin is the use of botanicals – there is a lot you can do with them in the gin-making process. Jon and Sarah believe that gin should still be predominantly juniper flavoured – it’s a choice (some of the new ones aren’t). But from there on, there’s a lot of flexibility and you can almost do or add anything you like. And this is where Jon and Sarah have worked their magic to produce there exquisite uniqueness of KIS gins which underpins Kangaroo Island Spirits’ core values and product personality.
