I was SO excited to meet the owners Jon & Sarah Lark, long lost family and owners of KIS. Loved meeting you both, shame it was for the shortest time. I'm planning on returning for a longer trip. Till we meet again, Di Larke XXX

Staff was very friendly, and explained about the different spirits in an engaging way. You can sample the different gin varieties on offer, anisette and/or a delightful honey and walnut liqueur. Have an affogato in the small garden area. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
