Fort George Genever

Fort George Genever is handcrafted from a mash of equal parts Nova Scotian rye, corn, and malted barley.Twice distilled and infused with a subtle blend of botanicals including juniper, caraway, cinnamon, frankincense and pink peppercorn. This classic spirit is barrel aged in oak barrels which lends flavours of oak, vanilla caramel and smoke.

Noon Gun Gin

Noon Gun Gin starts with a base of 100% Nova Scotian wheat and 10 classic gin botanicals. The gin is aged in oak barrels for 5 months. This results in a full bodied, extremely smooth spirit that appeals to both gin and whiskey lovers. Juniper on the nose with a sweet, smooth finish.

Daily Ration Rum

Daily Ration Rum is fermented and distilled in small batches from Crosby's Molasses and sugar. Barrel aged for one year, this amber rum has a warm brown color with an attractive sweet nose, wood flavour and a bright, sweet finish.
