  • If you enjoy the smell of stored wood and the smell of wood burning then this place is a must to visit. The distillation process was happening while we were there. Friendly staff were there to provide...  more »
  • We stopped in here on our Honey Moon, it was a fun little tour. Then the samples.. wow! they were all very nice. we ended up taking a bottle of Rhubarb home! yummy! 
  • Great place to drop in and check out. The large floor boards, the old distillery equipment is pretty neat to look at. They also have free samples to try their many delicious liquors. I especially like...  more »

  • Oh this place is just awesome. If you're ever in Lunenburg sign for the guided tour. It costs $10 but you get a shot glass and get to taste all their drinks. About drinks, I can see how they won their awards. Never heard of Apple vodka before but it was so smooth and tasting good. I liked their gin, and I hate gin in general!!! The berry liqueurs were quite unique. You can probably combine them in so many ways in cocktails. The best things they offer IMO is their dark rum and the brandy. It's pricey, but a perfect gift for someone special!
  • Awesome little distillery that's well worth the visit. The dark rum is delicious, to go with a great selection of liquers and esprits - the rhubarb esprit is amazing!! If you have time to do the tour, do it! Well worth the $$ - get to taste all spirits available with a nice little present at the end. And the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.
  • These guys know thier stuff! Ask for a tasting or a tour heck buy some will yah
  • tour was fantastic. my favourite was the bluenose rum. A lot of people on the tour seemed to like the fruitier liquors but I found them to be... medicinal tasting....
  • A definite must if you are in Lunenburg. Interesting building ,informative staff and very good Bluenose Rum.
