A talented group of Mixologists joined us to introduce everyone to the evolving new world of Nova Scotia’s distillers. Leading workshops, showing off in a celebration of cocktails, inspiring Lunenburg’s talented chefs in dining events, these knowledgeable cocktail enthusiasts ensured a unique colourful weekend of fun.


More than thirty varieties of spirits and liqueur are already being created by eleven distilleries in the province of Nova Scotia. Rum, whiskey, vodka, brandy, liqueurs, gin, and more, all made in Nova Scotia, were celebrated during the third annual Spirited Away Festival. Maybe next year you can join us. Meet the distillers. Taste our products and celebrate the emergence of the Nova Scotia Craft Distillery revolution.
