Scott Blackburn founded Southern Shine Distillery in honour of his grandfather, the illustrious Pop Lenny, who while serving as a stoker below deck in the Royal Australian Navy during WWII. Lenny would use surplus pantry goods to produce clear spirit when others were ashore, aiding in keeping his shipmates afloat.
Capturing the spirit of great southern skies and glinting oceans, the Southern Shine Distillery harnesses hands-on crafting to express proudly South Australian ingredients and continue the family distilling tradition. Scott and his team bring you the flavours of the coast, distilled.
