Halifax Distilling Co.

With roots in North Carolina, Julie Shore and Arla Johnson fell in love with Canada nine years ago, and have brought an entrepreneurial spirit and their love of fine spirits to downtown Halifax. Julie, a dental hygienist and Arla, a psychologist, decided to leave their jobs behind and build an Inn in eastern PEI. Soon after, Julie started thinking about the business of her ancestors in North Carolina – distilling whiskey, apple brandy and bourbon. Julie’s great, great, great grandfather was I.C. Shore, a Master Distiller. With PEI potatoes everywhere, Julie decided to open a distillery producing potato vodka. As women, Julie and Arla are proud to carry on the tradition of handcrafted spirits in a small-batch copper still. The Halifax Distilling Co. not only crafts locally distilled rum, but offers a production tour of the facility, a tasting bar and a retail store to help share Arla and Julie’s passion for fine crafted spirits.

Halifax Citadel Hill

Today, the Halifax Citadel continues to watch over the city’s downtown core, although now its role is as a reminder of Halifax’s past and not as a military fortification. The present Citadel, completed in 1856, is officially called Fort George, named after Britain’s King George II, and is actually the fourth in a series of forts to sit atop what is now known as Citadel Hill. Its distinctive star shape is typical of many 19th century forts built by the British military and gave the garrison sweeping arcs of fire. From its deep defensive ditch, soldiers pointed muskets from every angle of its stout walls and large cannons lined its ramparts. It’s easy to see why no enemy force ever dared to attack the Halifax Citadel.
