Glenora Distillery

By JimV
Next we take a trip the other way going down towards Mabou and stopped in at this unique distillery along the way. Glenora claims to be the only single malt distillery in North America. Ther's more I could say but I ran into the same problem as before last night, had got everything entered up to upload when I lost it. I'm having computer troubles, but it's only on this site that happens!
The first is the quite imposing entrance, the others are a few shots around the place.

Many thanks for your C&C's on 'Broad Cove', many preferred V2 and I have to admit it was my own choice but, for some unknown reason, I changed my mind at the last minute.

A nice documentary set of this most attractive distillery and grounds, Jim, and I wonder if you managed a 'wee snifter' of the product. I do hope so.

What a pretty place to visit--- the grounds are beautifully kept---A snifter--- Yes, I hope so!

I often upload an image and use edit to add my text--- The site can be jumpy-- could be it has to travel too much for this side of the pond!

Thanks Ronnie and Jennn. I have had a glass of it, resembles closely a Speyside, I'm more an Islay man myself. They do conducted tours and I believe you get a sample, I can't afford to buy it as it retails at around $80/bottle!
The story I had last night was to tell you about my involvement (well- I hope so!) with this distillery. Back in the early '80's I as talking to a man who was a friend of a friend, he worked for the Cape Breton Delelopment Board and was telling me they were interested in having a facility for the production of either rum, wine or whisky on the island, and asked me for my opinion. I said that both rum and wine were already being done, but I thought whisky a good idea, but it should be a single malt as the sale of blended whiskies was in decline at that time, while singles were taking off, though did say that doing rum might be a good idea to fill in until the first batch of whisky had matured, which would take a minimum of 10 years.
It went ahead later that decade, and the first bottles were shipped around 2000, as they say - "the rest is history!"

A very fine set. I shall have to plan my next trip to Canada to include this area. It looks like a great place to visit....and a wee sample would be the icing on the cake.

Had a good look at your set Jim,it strikes me just how like northern Britain the area is.Good set and good info,re the recent events here we have had corruption ,both moral and financial, from the royals,the politicians ,the bankers ,media moguls ,we have had doctors and health workers being mass murderers,teachers and priests being paedofiles and then they wonder why society is broken,it beggers belief. You take care of you and yours Jim,stay well.

Beautiful shots of a beautiful place, Jim, and V4 just takes your breath away. Utterly wallworthy.

I thought you had been to Scotland there for a minute Jim. Love the mist over the trees in V1, and my favourite is V2. Beautiful shot of the distillary. As for the whisky - can't even stand the smell of the stuff, although my husband discovered Jura a few months ago, says that it is a lovely whisky - single malt I think. Moira

Great shots Jim, I hope you did sample the ware.

Have to tell you Jim, all the Wells Cathedral images are HDRs. I forgot to mention it.
