Kangaroo Island Spirits Tasting Tour

Experience the spirit of KI

Let Kangaroo Island Spirits take the helm!

For those who can’t make it over to the magical South Australian oasis, experience the beauty of KI in our very own city of Adelaide on the Torrens River on our vibrant tasting tour on The Torrens River. 

You will be served three of the fourteen spirits KIS currently distill at their craft distillery in Kangaroo Island. The spirits on offer rotate monthly which means each cruise will always delight new senses. 

Tasting tours run for an hour and a half and a KIS representative will talk you through the experience, what you’re tasting, how the spirits are crafted and the significance of distilling from KI. Have your questions at the ready and be prepared for an insightful cruise.

Included in the ticket cost is a matched array of snacks sourced either from KI or locally to enjoy with your tastings and special city views you’d be pressed to experience any other way.

Of course, there will be a bar on board selling a specialty KIS cocktail and all of the regular favourites of beer, wine and cider.

Disclaimer *Best to enjoy all three tastings before you KIS the nearest sailor.

Gin Cruise

YES, DRINKING GIN ON THE POPEYE IS A REAL THING...

Join us on our sellout Prohibition Liquor Co Gin Masterclass!

Prohibition and Popeye have teamed up to offer a Gin Cruise, celebrating award winning South Australian Gin and combining it with glorious surrounds, paired with local food and great company, all while cruising along in the heart of the city.

The gin cruise will begin and run for an hour and a half. Board at The Elder Park Landing and learn from Prohibition the secrets behind how they create their gin, how to best enjoy them and be invited to create your own concoction. Don’t be afraid to ask all about what makes these gins truly unique.

The ticket price includes a cruise on Popeye, a tasting flight of three of Prohibitions best gins with a 45 minute talk focusing on the best way to enjoy them. There will be a bar slinging plenty of the favourites and other beer, wine and cider will be available for purchase on the day.

You’re encouraged to pre-order nibbles (pictured is a serving for 3). Whilst its usually one serving per person, who are we to say how many you should order! Order as many as your heart and stomach desires, especially as we are unable to process sales of them on the day.

Wouldn’t be a day out without a platter or two!
