LIMEBURNERS Directors Cut
LIMEBURNERS Directors Cut. 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 Barrel Strength Single Malts are 61% abv. They are bottled exactly as they come out of the barrel. As the distillery do not use any caramel colouring or cold filtration, each expression shows the unique qualities of the barrel(s) it has been in. Made and hand bottled at the Great Southern Distillery on the harbour’s edge in Albany, this complex and elegant single malt whisky is distilled in traditional small batch copper pot stills from local barley.
Directors Cut M231 has been matured in American oak ex Bourbon barrels and finished in a very old ex Port cask. Limeburners Director’s Cut comes from our Directors select reserve of barrels and represents the top shelf of the Limeburners range.
