We had a quick drink here. I can't attest for it's signature product - rum - since I was driving but the atmosphere is great. There was a Halloween party when we went and also a live band, with lots of people dancing.

We stopped on a whim while in Halifax. Glad we did! We took the distillery tour and had a few drinks at the bar. All were great. Highly recommend the rum cream (Grown Up Chocolate Milk) and the Stormy Weather. Terrific service!!!
