A talented group of Mixologists has joined us every year 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 have always ensured a unique colourful weekend of fun. In years past, some of the participants have included these mixologist experts….


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 fourth annual Spirited Away Festival in 2018. Maybe next year you can join us. Meet the distillers. Taste our products and celebrate the emergence of the Nova Scotia Craft Distillery revolution.
