Ep 74 Jon And Sarah Lark On The Seachange That Led To The Making Of Australia's Best Gin Rooster Radio - Stories & Insights from Entrepreneurs and Leaders in Business, Health, Tech & More

Jon and Sarah Lark have been at the forefront of a thriving Australian craft spirits industry for the last ten years, and have won awards for their gin all over the world, including Australia's best gin.

It all started with a seachange. The couple visited Kangaroo Island while on honeymoon, and decided it was the perfect place to set up their own distillery, on a hunch that gin was about to make a comeback. They weren't wrong.

With a little help from Jon's brother, Bill, known as the godfather of whisky in Tasmania, KI Spirits is now producing the most sought after gin. Their cellar door is a tourist destination on the Island, business is booming and the gin market is growing.

Jon and Sarah share their story, which has great successes and many challenges - including export tax, and the logistics of working on the island.

We also get a great little lesson on the history of gin, and the distilling process.
