Osprey Shores is the first golf course in the world to have a distillery. Opening to the public on June 18th, 2016, Authentic Seacoast Distilling Co. will be home to award-winning spirits and craft beers including Sea Fever Rum, Fortress Rum, GLYNNEVAN Whisky and Rare Bird Craft Beer. These iconic brands bring Nova Scotia’s proud brewing and rum trading history to life and create new traditions here against the Atlantic.
The Authentic Seacoast distillery and brewery will not only offers tours of the distillery and brewery and tastings of the products, but gives visitors a glimpse into the deep history of beer and spirits on the historic Guysborough harbour. Guysborough is the birthplace of brewing in Atlantic Canada, started in 1659 by the Acadian entrepreneur Nicholas Denys. Authentic Seacoast Brewing Company’s Rare Bird Craft Beer continues this proud brewing tradition with Guysborough being named by Where as one of Canada’s ten great craft beer destinations.
Equally exciting is Guysborough’s rich rum trading history. Visitors will experience Nova Scotia’s proud rum heritage at the distillery, a tradition that goes back more than 300 hundred years, with salt cod and lumber leaving the shores of the Guysborough harbour for the Caribbean, the ships returning with “hogsheads” of rum in their holds. Authentic Seacoast Distilling Company restores this proud trading tradition with Sea Fever Rum.
In addition to the tours, tastings and historic experiences visitors will receive at Authentic Seacoast Distilling, they will also have an opportunity to play one of the Maritimes best oceanside golf courses, which has what 36 a Day called, “some of the most scenic vistas I’ve experience on a golf course.”
