The Great Southern Distillery was first opened in 2004 by Cameron Syme, who spent time working for a multinational commercial law firm, at that time he had 10 years’ experience as an accountant in Australia and the United Kingdom and gained a UK Trades Board “General Certificate in Distilling”.
Cameron’s research was very thorough taking him 14 years to collect enough resources and information to create something extra special.
His heritage was in fact from Scotland where his family history of distilling took place, so owning a distillery seemed like it was destiny.
The distillery is very small by world standards but they like it this way as it helps to spend more time producing quality single malt whisky. Each batch of spirit is produced and bottled by hand which means that they only produce spirit of the highest standard.
Limeburners Darkest Winter Single Malt Whisky uses peat collected by hand from the deepest darkest parts of the Valley of the Giants. The barley was smoked for an extended period, resulting in a heavier, more intense style of whisky ideally suited for darkest winter. This whisky was matured in an ex-bourbon American Oak cask. This whisky exhibits spice and floral aromas when neat and a splash of water unleashes malted barley and intense complex smokey aromas.
