Margaret River Distilling Co. (as part of Limeburners): Limeburners was the first Western Australian distillery to legally make single malt whisky, and their newest distillery, the Margaret River Distilling Co opened in November 2015. In 2004 after 14 years of research, the Great Southern Distilling Company was founded and commenced commercial production in 2005. Located on the edge of Princess Royal Harbour, the distillery takes advantage of Albany’s pristine water, clean air, abundance of local produce and cool marine climate.
In May 2008, the first flagship ‘Limeburners’ Single Malt Whisky was released. Not only was this recorded as an historic event because it was the first Single Malt Whisky ever distilled in Western Australia, but it also picked up a Bronze Medal at the prestigious International Wine & Spirits Competition in London. After selling out within the month, the distillery knew it was getting things right.
The whisky has proven itself time and again with such achievements as Australian’s Champion Whisky in 2015 and 2016 for its Heavily Peated Single Malt Whisky and being named Champion Australian Distiller at the Australian Distilled Spirits Awards this year.
Cameron decided to expand his distilling vision to a booming WA tourist destination in November 2015. The Limeburners Margaret River distillery follows the success of the flagship brand Limeburners from the Great southern Distilling Company in Albany with a goal to become another pioneer in the distilling industry
