Single Malt Whisky

Our distillery has been recognized as the first single malt whisky distillery in North America, and we’ve also produced the world’s first single malt whisky aged in ice wine barrels. Our copper pot stills and time-tested traditions mean the whisky we produce is on par with the greatest single malts in Scotland.

Glenora is located in Nova Scotia, a province whose name literally translates to ‘New Scotland.’ Being a part of Nova Scotia’s heritage means that Cape Breton Island is one of very few places on Earth where Gaelic culture and language thrive. As Scottish descendants we passionately keep the dearest aspects of our ancestor’s colourful culture alive.


The crystal clear water that flows from the Mabou Highlands gives Glen Breton its pure taste. The legacy of deep-rooted Scottish wisdom and culture give it its classic character.

Our Scottish descendants passionately keep the dearest aspects of colorful Gaelic culture alive – especially evident in the home of Glenora Distillery. It is in thanks to them, and to the purity of the MacLellan’s Brook as well, that Glen Breton owes its undeniably unique character.

“I had the pleasure of staying at Glenora Inn and Distillery during my trip to Cape Breton Highlands. The rooms were very comfortable, with a stunning view of the property. The dining options at Glenora were top-notch and creative dishes. I particularly enjoyed the whisky-infused desserts and the option to pair meals with Glenora's own whisky. ”
