Ironworks is a micro-distillery located in the old port of Lunenburg on Nova Scotia’s historic South Shore. We take our name from the 1893 heritage building we call home: a marine blacksmith’s shop that once produced ironworks for the shipbuilding trade.
As we have grown, the number of barrels of aging products has grown with us. There are now 200 barrels of our distilled product in oak. Most are in the barrel cellar and the newly built Quarrie Room , but as we are running out of space, barrels are now found throughout the distillery, including in our offices.
We take enormous pride in creating our products. Our vodka is made from Nova Scotia apples, and as such is one of very few made in that way within Canada. Our gin includes a portion of local juniper berries and numerous Nova Scotia sourced botanicals, including rosehips from a hedge down the street.
We truly love the process of creating our spirits and liqueurs from scratch. We never fail to get excited by the first loads of fresh apples in the fall, by the sweet aromas of the fermentations, by the delight of the first taste of pear coming off the still. We feel privileged to be able to work with great growers, and their exceptional fruit. We welcome you to share the tastes of Nova Scotia in our spirits and liqueurs.
