Inclusivity and Guest Well-Being At King Island Distillery, we are committed to accommodating a range of dietary preferences and allergies to the best of our ability. While we make every effort to offer options suitable for different needs, guests with specific dietary restrictions or allergies are advised to use their own judgement and caution when participating in our experiences. 

   Our team can provide ingredient information, but it's ultimately the guest's responsibility to make informed decisions based on their individual requirements. King Island Distillery is not liable for allergic reactions, health incidents, or any missing items during or after participation. Guest safety and well-being are paramount, and we encourage open communication to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.

GINformation for a Cause

Happy Heidi's GINspiration is to foster cocktail making confidence in consumers, who can then share their passion for responsibly creating, making and sipping cocktails safely at home. We encourage individuals to explore their own ideas, resulting in flavours that are richer and fresher than ever before. This concept, through each pour, cultivates a culture of knowledge, understanding and appreciation, more choices and opportunities while most importantly promoting quality over quantity.

   After a decade of industry research and development, this endeavour arises from a keen understanding of people's interests and needs. Heidi's objective is to responsibly create "cocktail confidence" in consumers, enabling them to share their excitement and knowledge with friends Nationwide. We aim to cultivate a culture of safe cocktail crafting at home, allowing people to explore their creativity and enjoy unparalleled freshness and taste. This movement may enhance demand for Tasmanian and Australian manufactured beverages in our rapidly growing craft spirits industry.

Our commitment to support resilient distillers we navigate a more than a glass half full of challenges, including government regulations and exorbitant excise tax. 

   Together, we can strengthen the niche artisan spirits market, address challenges brought on by the COVID-19 impacts and foster a wider appreciation for local handcrafted quality products in our industry.

By building up increased awareness about the benefits of small batch spirits, our dedication extends to the broader Australian distilling industry, on a path towards a stable, secure, sustainable and prosperous future.

Pouring for purpose:

Consider that the proceeds from this experience contribute to sending six King Island students to Hobart's Government House for valuable work experience. 

   This collaboration initiative is with Happy Heidi and the Team at Government house and will conclude with Tasmanian produce presented by the executive chef and inhouse catering Team to pair with Happy Weitjens King Island Distillery boutique batch artisan spirits, as a fundraising dinner onsite. Profit from the money raised will be donated towards sponsoring an annual opportunity for this partnership to continue as an enriching endeavour for King Island District high school students to celebrate their talents fostering growth and potential.
