The Diversity of Giniversity

2019-05-02T09:52:45+11:00

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.

His 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.

These successful shows have recently been passed on to new management which leaves us time and valuable experience on offer to Australia’s gin distillers.

Australian Made

2018-05-29T12:54:42+11:00

We have recognised a small tsunami of gin production, evident throughout Australia, in many cases evolving from winery cellar doors. The stand- alone distillers and the small batch winemakers alike are responding to a demand in the community for Australian made gin with our national botanicals offering exciting opportunities for creative blends. We are proud to be introducing the Australian Gin Awards and the Sydney Gin Palooza in 2019.
