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 feel privileged to be able to work with great growers, and their exceptional fruit.  We welcome you to share the tastes of Nova Scotia in our spirits and liqueurs.”

Tasting Notes

From the distillery: Splendidly dark rum, rich ruddy colour with a blend of caramel & molasses and just a hint of spice on the tongue.


The Bluenose Dark Rum is produced using all-natural molasses from the Caribbean – imported by the Crosby Molasses Company of Saint John, New Brunswick, which unloaded its first brigantine laden with barrels of the sweet, golden-brown liquid way back in 1879. After weeks of fermentation in the cool cellar of the distillery, the molasses mixture is distilled twice, bringing it up to 160 proof. The Kentucky oak Bourbon barrels are sealed and taken to the cellar to age.

    We visited the Ironworks Distillery this summer and I asked them for their darkest molassesy rum . They suggested the Bluenose which is exactly that. Alone it is a little edgy on the tongue, but mixed with a cola it gives the drink a pleasant deep rich flavour. As for the light zesty citron – not so much

    I have yet to find a better tasting dark rum. I drink this one on ice and have now been enjoying the spirit for many years.

  3. 5

    I’ve been to the Distillery twice now, each time buying a different product, all enjoyable and Ironworks Bluenose Dark is still the greatest tasting Rum in the market today…see yas again soon!
