The Antigonish Chamber of Commerce organized their monthly networking meeting “Business Connects” with a trip on the Luxury Bus to Steinhart Distillery in Arisaig.
The Luxury Bus is a great way to chat and meet with people as the comfortable padded seating goes around the bus – not in row seats. Our driver, owner, Gerard MacIsaac was engaging and helpful. Great way to travel with a group.
Such a beautiful drive along the Northumberland Shore. A beautiful view of Arisaig from the patio at Steinhart Distillery. Thomas Steinhart gave us a tour of the operations and an interesting history of developing his business. It is amazing to see how this business has impacted employment and agriculture. Wherever possible the ingredients are locally sourced. Truckloads of rhubarb arrived from multiple farmers to be made into the rhubarb gin. Several of the products have won awards nationally and internationally.
At the bar we ordered from their variety menu of gin, vodka and mixed drinks made to order. A wonderful way to socialize and network with the Chamber members and guests. Looking forward to future trips to other businesses in the area.
