Margaret River Distilling Company is the home of Giniversity Gin, and sister distillery to Great Southern Distilling Company in Albany which produces the award-winning Limeburners, Tiger Snake and Dugite Whiskies.

Tucked away amongst the native Peppermint trees, Margaret River Distilling Company is based in the heart of Margaret River just a short stroll from the centre of town. Enjoy a delicious meal and a tasting flight of premium spirits, or one of their scrumptious cocktails.

Locally roasted coffee and a selection of local beers and wines are also available.

Master Distiller and Founder Cameron Syme has been distilling premium craft spirits since 2005, for the most part in Albany until Margaret River Distilling Company officially opened for business in November 2015. 

All products produced are available to taste in the venue, offering casual tavern-style dining all day in a lush forest backdrop and just a short walk from the town centre. With an extensive range of tastings available there is sure to be something for everyone, including Single Malt Whisky, American style Whiskey, Gin, Vodka, and other special limited edition spirits. To satisfy every need there is also a range of locally-sourced beer, wine, cider, coffee, and an all-day menu to keep the whole family happy. Plus they are dog-friendly!

If you have ever wanted to be a Distiller for a day, then the Giniversity experiences are the perfect way to give it a try. The Blending class takes you through the history of gin, learn spirit-making practices, sample the Giniversity range, and then design and blend your own bespoke recipe. Each participant then takes home their own custom 500ml bottle of gin. 

Accommodation is available at the adjoining Riverglen Chalets, which is located just across the brook. For bookings and enquiries visit the website or call 08 9757 9351.

Had a gin tasting and some lunch today. The staff were really nice and friendly. When the tasting pallet arrived we were given a little run down on how to taste and it was all really yummy. They charge for the taster, which is absolutely fine, and explained when you come down. We bought a couple of bottles, and because of this money was taken off the taster at the till, which was really nice. Would definitely go back next time we're down south. Alison Kerr

Our party off 3 had a wonderful time doing the “gin blending course”. After some mis-comms, we arrived a little over 30 mins late for the start of the course, and Emma, our lovely young host, fitted us in, and we were quickly brought up to speed. She is very knowledgeable about all things ‘spirits’ and we learnt so much. She later took us through to the stack distiller on site, and spent lots of time with us, answering all our questions, and running through the early part of the presentation on the history of gin. A marvellous experience, and would highly recommend to anyone. Reece Benson
