By Ironworks Distillery, Micro-Distillery, Nova Scotia 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. We craft our spirits with the same love of traditional methods, attention to detail and have a passion for using locally grown and sustainable ingredients.
