Sussex Craft Distillery – A Taste of History

Handcrafted Spirits, Sussex Craft Distillery

At Sussex Craft Distillery we are committed to making small batch spirits using high quality local New Brunswick ingredients.  Our signature product, Northern Comfort is a Maple rum liqueur made with molasses from Crosby’s Molasses in Saint John and Steeve’s Maple Syrup in Elgin and the rum is aged with a blend of spices and roasted Sugar Maple hardwood, harvested from the Acadian Forest eco-region of Southern New Brunswick.  Sussex Craft Distillery is attempting to recapture the history of beverage making in the area and our Ward’s Creek White is in homage to the rum runners in years past that based their operations in the back roads of the area.

Founded by a group of nine local investors, this group has lived in the area their entire lives, hunting, fishing, playing ball and hockey together and in 2016 they decided to enter the growing craft spirit business.  They are focused on making quality products, with quality ingredients and sourced locally to deliver a taste that is unique and inviting to the palate.
