Giniversity Botanical Gin
Giniversity Was One Of The First Gin Distilleries On The Mainland, And Years Of Experimentation, Research And Expertise Has Resulted In Six Incredible Gin Expressions That Showcase Some Of The Native Botanicals From Our Corner Of The Globe. Founder Cameron Syme began Great Southern Distilling Co in 2004, in Albany, and the first spirit he distilled was a single malt whisky. In 2005, Cameron launched Australia’s third gin distillery (and the first craft gin distillery on the mainland) under the Margaret River Distilling Co banner. The ‘Ginnifer Gin’ released was the very first Barrel Aged Gin in Australia.
2015 saw the purchase and renovation of the current Margaret River Distilling Co site, situated walking distance from Margaret River township. This is the home of Giniversity, and where the Giniversity Experiences began. It’s another way of introducing people to the incredible local botanicals available in this part of the world, internationally recognised as one of 34 biodiversity hotspots, that make Giniversity gins so special.
