Glenora named one of the best distillery hotels in the world


A Cape Breton distillery is getting recognition across the globe.


Travel+Leisure released their top 11 best distillery hotels in the world.


Locations include the United States, Mexico, Scotland, Peru and Cape Breton.


The Glenora Inn and Distillery in Inverness Co. made the list.


Here’s what Travel+Leisure had to say about the distillery located on the west coast of Cape Breton Island.


When the Scottish landed on Cape Breton Island in the early 1880s, the verdant landscape reminded the immigrants of their homeland and dubbed this part of Canada as Nova Scotia, meaning "New Scotland" in Latin.

It's here that you'll find Glenora Inn & Distillery, which aptly makes Scottish-style whisky.


Originally founded by Bruce Jardin, he called on Bowmore Distillers to aid in production training and sourcing authentic Scottish copper pot stills and a mash tun for his facility and in 1990 opened North America's first single-malt whisky distillery.


The property welcomes guests seasonally from mid-May to late October and offers daily tours during this time along with tastings of various expressions.


You'll have a wide range of rustic accommodations to choose from, including rooms in the historic inn and private log chalets, as well as a pub and restaurant to imbibe and dine at while listening to live music.
