History When Cameron Syme set up Great Southern Distilling Company in 2004, he had one goal – to make the best spirits in the world. Today, Cameron has established and owns 3 distilleries, two under the Great Southern Distilling Co, banner and one distillery operates under Margaret River Distilling Co. In these distilleries Cameron has been producing award-winning Australian Whisky and Gin for over 15 years. The Great Southern Distilling Company, has distilleries in Albany and Porongurup, in Western Australia’s Great Southern Region. The Albany distillery produces the internationally acclaimed and multi-award winning Limeburners Single Malt Whisky. The Porongurup distillery makes Tiger Snake Sour Mash Whiskey, Brandy and Rum. The leading Australian gin brand of ‘Giniversity’ is made at the Margaret River Distilling Company, which Cameron opened in 2015. Almost two decades on from the day Cameron distilled his first Gin and Limeburners Single Malt, each of these three distillery sites are their own “centre of excellence”, specialising in specific spirits. World leading whisky critic Jim Murray has recognised us as one of the World’s great distilleries, and a number of international Trophies also acknowledge that we have achieved Cameron’s goal of producing some of the World’s best whisky and spirits. Cameron has proven he has one of the World’s most discerning palates, and has developed an enviable record as one of the World’s leading Craft Distillers.
