Halifax Distilling Co.

Carrying on the tradition of handcrafted spirits

Building on the traditions of her distilling ancestors, Julie Shore is the first to bring distilling back to life in her family since prohibition. Julie Shore and Arla Johnson, the owners of Halifax Distilling Co., are “spirited” in everything they do. When COVID-19 disrupted the world and the call went out for emergency supplies, they partnered with Nova Scotia Power to produce ‘Happy Hands’ hand sanitizer, which was distributed to local charities and shelters. This holiday season, they’re proud to sponsor the Halifax Evergreen Festival in support of Family SOS, a local non-profit. And when they’re not busy with charitable actions, they just happened to introduce four new rum products under the J.D. Shore brand – which is often one of the top sellers at NSLCs and private stores across the province.
