So, who is Carmel Distillery?

Carmel Distillery is a small batch artisan distillery located in the gorgeous Perth Hills run by me, Simon King, Director & Chief Alchemist. My mission is to create small batch spirits and liqueurs that allow you to cultivate a relationship with the Perth Hills and our community, and to take home a true taste of the region.
