Just up the road from Days Gone By Bakery at 75 Ferry Lane is the Authentic Seacoast™ Distilling Company. Since we serve their delicious spirits and beer in our restaurant, we thought it would be fun (and educational) to stop in for a visit on Victoria Day.
At Days Gone By Bakery we pride ourselves in showing our guests the best East Coast hospitality, so because Authentic Seacoast™ Company and their promotions of Guysborough bring many new people to our area, we feel it is our responsibility to know more about the products. AND... for a small fee they offer a tasting at the end of their tour. Just sayin'!
General Manager, John Stapleton, was there to greet us and tour us around their state of the art facility. He explained to us the processes, the volumes, the production line and how they maintain the great quality and taste of their products. It is a very complex process and we were really impressed to see such an amazing operation happening so close to home!
While on the tour we were introduced to the newest member of their craft beer family, Rare Bird Craft Beer IPA which you will be able to find in our dining room this summer!
Not only was our visit with Authentic Seacoast™ Company educational, but it was a great relaxing atmosphere and John's hospitality was stellar! We worked up quite a thirst during the tour so sampling it at the end was a pure pleasure. I just know our guests are going to love this beer! It is light and flavourful with notes of citrus and peach. It will definitely be a refreshing hit for beating the summer heat.
Our team outing inspired us to head into this busy summer season feeling motivated and confident about our own services and products. We know our guests have high expectations of us so we hope this will show them how much we value quality products. The Authentic Seacoast™ Distilling Company does not make it easy for us to appear geographically unbiased, but we do think you might just enjoy them even more because they are made in the beautiful village of Guysborough.
