Owner description: Ironworks Distillery opened its doors to the public in June 2010. Situated in the old town of Lunenburg and residing in the building that used to be the old marine blacksmith shop, we create small batches of artisan spirits using produce from the Maritimes. We make vodka and brandy using Annapolis Valley apples, Pear Eaude vie and several delicious fruit liqueurs. Tastings are free.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

What a nice addition to Old Town. Nice restoration to leave the floor of the old ironworks shop in place. Interesting tastings for sure. Worth stopping by while you are in Lunenburg.

“A must on your to do list!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

We went for a tour and were lucky enough to have Linda (owner) as our tour guide! We learned so much and had a really great time. She answered so many of our questions! What a wonderful atmosphere. The staff were super friendly and we truly enjoyed ourselves! The sample tasting was an added bonus!!

“try something different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

the visit here was very interesting and the tasting afterwards good. You can have here rhum , Vodka and Fruit Liqueurs. Fastinating was that they use not only the usual fruits. I loved the Rhubarbliqueur the most.

“Old building repurposed to smart distillery!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Interesting products (ever-changing fruit based liquers), rum, vidka - elegant bottles, quirky old flooring, barrels from some awesome distilleries, and a chance to watch the disstilling process. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, good samples - :) - some appropriate souvenirs available and they help pack for travel
