Ironworks Distillery

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.

Over the years we have developed an extensive network of farmers exclusively within Nova Scotia from whom we buy products.  Our cranberries travel a mere 8 kilometres from bog to distillery and no fruit travels more than 150 kilometres.  Apples, pears, grapes, raspberries, blueberries are bountiful in Nova Scotia and we use them all.  Since sugar cane doesn't grow in Nova Scotia, at least not yet, and we simply couldn't not make rum, we have opted to use Crosby’s molasses, imported from Guatemala and processed in New Brunswick, for our award winning Rum. With a wide range of spirits—rum, whisky, vodka, gin and brandy, as well as blueberry, cranberry, raspberry and rhubarb liqueurs, and Pear Eaux-de-Vie, we are proud to represent Lunenburg to the world.
