About
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 Eau-de-vie, Rum, Gin, Whisky and several delicious fruit liqueurs. Tastings are free. Please contact us to check on the tour availability.

Excellent staff, yummy spirits, great gift idea! We stopped in with kids in tow and they entertained themselves nearby while we sampled spirits. Some of the best spirits we tried on island.

The Ironworks is a small distillery that produces gin, vodka and rum along with a few other liqueurs. We spent a good hour or so talking with John about the distillery, how the products are made and a variety of other topics along with sampling their products. If you go look for John. He's a tall gentleman from England who will enjoyably talk your ear off. We had a wonderful time.

Very interesting building with a great educational tour. The rums weren’t my favourite but did enjoy the gin products.

We stopped and did some tasting of local spirits and left with a couple of bottles. We recommend the gin and the cream rum.

Saw the advertisements re this Distillery and we were very impressed with all we saw and learned. Kudos to the owners and the staff - we came away minus quite a bit of well spent money,.
