Immerse yourself in the captivating world of craft spirits made of King Island, distilled with passion by Happy Heidi. Book to embark on a journey to our King Island distillery and meet the maker, Heidi Weitjens, the visionary behind this rare gem of a distillery. Every step, from founding to distilling and bottling the first King Island gin, is lovingly carried out by one person - a female Native. In 2014, King Island Distillery fearlessly joined the esteemed Tasmanian distilling community inspired by industry pioneers Bill and Lyn Lark. To this day, it is a choice to still do everything by hand. Our locally crafted boutique batch artisan spirits, infused with a "happy Heidi attitude at 40°S Latitude” are a labour of love, for an unforgettable taste experience. Discover the pure pleasure of drinking our beautiful beverages, available for purchase at our distillery door and through our online store. Join our exclusive Copper Angel Club on our website and stay updated on our GINcredible adventures, while discovering ways the ever expanding range of artisan spirits of King Island Distillery can always enhance your own collection.
