Ironworks Distillery Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

This is Nova Scotia's first micro-distillery, in the heart of Old Lunenburg. Lunenberg is a world heritage UNESCO site on the scenic south shore of Nova Scotia.  We rolled in after a stormy day to magnificent sunshine and walked the streets looking into the shops.  Really beautiful.  Then we came across the Ironworks distillery.  It is an artisan distillery located in the historic port town that gets it's name from a marine blacksmith shop that was in the building previous. Lunenberg has a lot of boat builders and ship building facilities as well as a tourist destination.  They use only natural ingredients and offer complimentary tastings.  We were pleasantly surprised how smooth their spirits tasted.  They have also won awards for brandy and rum. Check it out next time your in Nova Scotia.
