GEORGE GEORGIADIS
MANAGING DIRECTOR, NEVER NEVER DISTILLING CO.

GEORGE GEORGIADISd

George Georgiadis is Co-Founder and Managing Director of Never Never Distilling Co. As Never Never’s Spirit Creature, he has a deep knowledge of flavour and spirits. He’s fearless in his quest for flavour, whether it be in gin or other passions such as coffee, beer and cheese. You’ll often see a team member stick something in front of him for quick thoughts - “the nose knows” as they say.

George has travelled extensively, seeking out hundreds of distilleries across the world, and brings his passion for flavour into the R&D program at Never Never, through their gins and limited releases such as aquavit and amaro.

George is thrilled to work everyday in the dynamic South Australian food and beverage industry, and loves being based in the incredible region of McLaren Vale.

Hailing from Greek heritage, George has always been surrounded by food, and a knowledge that quality ingredients and process are key to flavour. He particularly enjoyed making an Ouzo style product that pays homage to his mum’s home island of Lesbos. If George hadn’t started a gin distillery, he’d probably be making sheep’s milk cheese!

MARK KOOLMATRIE
OWNER, TRIBAL EXPERTISE FACILITY AND CHAIRPERSON, STATE ABORIGINAL HERITAGE COMMITTEE – SA,

koolmatrie

Mark Koolmatrie is a Tribal man from southern South Australia. He represents various Tribes including Ngarrindjeri and their subsets of Ramindjeri, Yaralde, Tangani, Warki and Meintangk.

He grew up in and around the Raukkan community on the shores of Lake Alexandrina SA which is famous for the recognition of David Unipon the famous inventor on our Australian currency. Throughout his working life he has been passionate about cultural heritage, education and the protection of his peoples right to thrive.

This all has come at a cost as the systemic destruction of his people’s lifestyle and basic human right to survive has meant he has always been at loggerheads with “authority” and his idea of community capacity building as opposed to top down approaches of control. He is an educator as a school teacher and lecturer, a researcher having written his thesis on The Tribal man in contemporary Australia and he is a cultural leader having been recently appointed Chair of State Aboriginal Heritage Committee in South Australia, the peak body for the protection of cultural heritage.
