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.

Heidi is such a lovely person to meet and learn from when you hear her give insight into not only her liquor making but also the island itself. It was a great experience sharing some laughs while we had some taste tests. I happily bought some delicious spirits to take home. Heidi's take on limencello in particular was fantastic and it pleasently surprised my father in law. Will visit again on our next trip to King Island.

Heid is an incredibly passionate, knowledge King Islander. The tasting session is well worth it and even if you don't like alcohol you will enjoy an education experience from Heidi. Was a highlight of our trip.

Heidi has created a great range of local Gins and a twist on Limoncello. The “Bellacella” is full of flavour. It’s always great to find authentic places when travelling. Highly recommend a visit to see a local hidden gem :)

Didn't feel overly welcomed, we were visitors on the island and really felt like a burden.
At the time of our visit the lady was making her gin which was interesting.

So much fun meeting Heidi, hearing her story and tasting her spirits! Fantastic Gin, Vodka and Limoncello - all with a great back story - from the angel wing stills being Heidi's own design, the stills boat journey from Hobart to Heidi taking a barrel onboard while working on a cray boat to bring some of the ocean essence to the spirit - it was a real interesting and high energy experience. The oak aged vodka was exceptional and very different and the Limoncello could be quite dangerous. Heidi can also source a fresh crayfish if you are in the market for one.

King island distillery is an absolute must do stopover when you go to KI! Heidi was very knowledgeable and gave us some interesting insight, along with 5 star gin, vodka and more. Super well priced as well, couldn’t recommend more!

It was great to visit Heidi and hear the story of her local distillation of gin and vodka!
We booked through the king island main site which was really easy to organise and pay for, and she was a great host to us while we visited the boutique distillery
