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 that thrived in our town. Today, we craft our spirits with the same love of traditional methods and attention to detail. Drop by our distillery shop, take in the history and join a behind the scenes tour, watch us in action and enjoy a taste of the product.
