Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a fun experience and unexpected gem of King Island the distillery is. Whilst not being avid gin drinkers, from the moment our group entered the venue Heidi's love for the craft was on show for all. A very informative visit, from the barrel construction and wood preparation to suit the hosts personal taste, right through to the dried fruit additions to round out the surprising variance in flavours. This is a must visit for any king island trip. Heidi's infectious zest for all that she does, including the odd snake wrangle, will no doubt have you expecting a delivery home soon of more than one of the many gin and spirits flavours, the coffee Martini is to die for and be sure to ask for cream, or if you're lucky, condensed milk. Thank you Heidi, our group had a fantastic time.

Heidi is a gem and passionate about her product. We were treated to a great tasting session of gin, spirits and whisky. As well as tasting the products, Heidi showed us how the addition of small things, like dehydrated orange rind, or native salt bush leaves, enhanced the flavours. As well as buying some bottles to bring home, I feel like we learned a lot that will make our spirit drinking much more pleasurable in the future. Thank you Heidi.

Well … wasn’t this place a delight! The highlight of my trip. Everyone around the island was so nice and welcoming and then this place took it to another level for me and an experience I’ll never forget!

Heidi you was a delight, your products A1, professional packaging and labelling, I wanted to buy them just to be on display they looked so good… but then I tried them… WOW🤩. Your products need to be shared with the world. Not only being endorsed by Mr Bill Lark 🥃himself (what an honour) but to have my own personal bottle of Negroni 🍸created by you, was such an experience that I will remember forever. Thank you!! 🥰

Igor, I even got to try a little treat from Anvers while there… a prefect touch to my espresso martini 🍸

Tasting spirits of such a variety of flavours is exception, but pair this with proud local stories and we have an enjoyable experience. Approximately 40 minutes and no hard sell.
