The National Keep Australia Beautiful Judge, Gail Langley says, "King Island demonstrates an enormous passion for their unique environment and ancestry, with the community exemplifying the concept of sustainability. It is a resourceful place, with the island’s services mostly run by volunteers.
Caroline Ashford launched 'The Gin Queen' in December 2013 to share her enthusiasm for gin and the people who make it.
It will be a dream come true, if Caroline, The Gin Queen, one day considers happy Heidi's handcrafted King Island Distillery Native Gin.
Or, perhaps Heidi's one of a kind barrel aged gin, cask aged on a cray fishing boat she works on out in the rough seas around King Island and Tasmania may be more the interesting style of the first King Island Distillery Gin.
An invitation, in response to my letter, to fly down to Hobart and discuss the Whisky industry with Bill Lark, at the Lark Bar, is where it all began for me.
Meeting the Godfather Bill Lark was the biggest influence of my King Island Distillery journey.
