TOURS & EVENT INFO
Do you offer tours?
Yes we do! Click here to book a tour and see what dates and times are available. PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid-19 we have temporarily suspended tours but we hope to resume giving tours and tastings in the spring. Scheduling will depend on the progress of the pandemic and the resulting shutdowns. Stay tuned and stay optimistic!
How long are your tours and do they include samples?
A behind-the-scenes tour of our historic building lasts 45 minutes. Tours can be booked in advance on our website (this is recommended as we have only a limited number of spots available). Tours end in the Quarrie Room and, at that time, guests are invited to sample our products while admiring our newest still, Ruby.
What happens if I am running late?
Due to our tight schedule, tours begin promptly at the advertised start time. Unfortunately we are not able to wait for guests who are running late. You may catch up with the group upon your arrival but we are unable to repeat any information that has already been shared.
Are children allowed on the tour?
We apologize but we are not currently permitting anyone under the age of 19 on tours.
Can I cancel or reschedule my tour?
Tours can be cancelled up to 24 hours in advance.
Do you offer private tastings or special event bookings?
Yes, we can accommodate special events. For more information and to discuss your request please contact us by email with details email@example.com
Are your products gluten-free?
I've never heard of Haskap Berries. What are they?
The Haskap Berry (also known as Blue Honeysuckle) grows wild in every province except BC, but the cultivated varieties have only recently begun producing fruit in Nova Scotia. The berry itself is deep purple blue in colour and has a taste with the tang of raspberry and the richness of blueberry.
WHERE CAN I FIND YOUR PRODUCTS?
Do you ship?
We do! We offer shipping within Canada (with the exception of Alberta). Packages are delivered by Canada Post. We offer a flat rate of $30 for purchases under $100. Orders of $100 and more ship for free.

What COVID protocols are in place at Ironworks?
We have limited the number of guests who can enter the retail space. There is hand sanitizer available at each entrance. Our staff are masked at all times and we provide free masks for any visitors who do not have one with them. The sales counter is protected with windows (literally our old storm windows!) Our sampling service is suspended for now. We are doing regular cleaning of high touch surfaces. Plus we are situated in a building that is 120 years old, sitting beside the Atlantic Ocean, which means that we have perfect and constant air circulation!
