We did this tour. it was very informative and we really enjoyed it. The tour is about an hour long. They had a nice gift shop. I had purchased a couple of things...a little pricey but definitely not something I would find elsewhere.

We stopped in to try their flight of four rums and a whisky, and found all of them very satisfying. The bartender was very personable and knew his stuff about their products. We ended up buying a bottle to take home.

We came to the Halifax distillery without any expectations and were blown away. The production and process in making these spirits is incredible. I have tried a lot of rums due to my job and I have never tasted a rum like this before. Amazing!...More

We didn't do the rum tasty but just had some pleasant rum based cocktails. We were served by nice young folk and the walls are full of lots of information about the run running that took place out of this area in the early 20th...More
