Founded in 2004 by Cameron Syme, Great Southern Distilling Co is located primarily on the edge of Princess Royal Harbour, Great Southern Distilling Company, was the very first distillery to legally make Single Malt Whisky in Western Australia.
Today, Cameron has established three distilleries, all in iconic West Australian locations; Albany and Porongurup Distilleries operate under the banner of Great Southern Distilling Co & Margaret River under Margaret River Distilling Co.
Our flagship brand, Limeburners, has become synonymous with premium quality.
The name Limeburners comes from the National Heritage listed Limeburners point just a short distance from the Albany Distillery, where convicts were once sent to create kilns to burn limestone to make lime for the building industry.
Their 7-day process is the same time we dedicate to making each barrel of Whisky and is a connection with Albanys past.
Today, Limeburners is world-renowned.
