A deep family history and an adventurous modern day endeavor brings you Coldstream Clear Distillery. Our story begins with Mr. Simon Giffin; the first family ancestor to arrive in Nova Scotia. He came to Halifax in 1749 from Northern Ireland and practiced his trade as a very successful distiller with his distillery on Tobin Street in Halifax. Little did Simon know, his family name would live on and the distilling tradition would be revived a full nine generations later.

Our quality lineup of vodkas, rums and liqueurs are made with genuine ingredients and water from a natural artesian spring deep beneath rural Nova Scotia. Visitors have the opportunity to view the distillery and learn the fascinating process of creating world class spirits. While viewing, visitors may taste any products they wish, discovering unique cocktail ideas and genuine great tastes.
