Souwester Distillery and spirits is located at the beautiful Margaret river in Western Australia. It was founded by Danielle Costley, an internationally acclaimed wine, food and travel writer who has spent the last twenty years tasting wines, traversing through vineyards, picking grapes and learning what makes a fine wine. Whilst studying winemaking, Danielle discovered a passion for distillation – in particular, barrel-aged spirits. She quickly secured the rare Iced Chardonnay barrels from Fraser Gallop Estate and started experimenting with gin and whisky.
Danielle Comments: “This southern corner of Western Australia is overflowing with local produce. When you sip on our spirits, I want to conjure up images of this special part of the world. Ageing our spirits in rare Chardonnay barrels not only makes our spirits unique, but it also pays homage to the magnificent Margaret River wine region where we are based.”
The SouWester name pays tribute to the actual Souwester, a well-known sea breeze that roars across the west coast of Australia during the summer months. All the distilleries barrels are within a stone’s throw from the Indian Ocean and the prevailing sea breezes, so the name seemed right on.
