Mixologists / Bartenders: West meets East!

A talented group of Mixologist / Bartenders has joined us every year to introduce everyone to the evolving new world of Nova Scotia’s evolving cocktail culture and talented 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. This year we will be welcoming these talented people from Halifax, and Calgary too!


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.


The beauty of holding the Festival in Lunenburg, everything is within easy walking distance. The following Hotels & Inns have participated in past years offering a variety of accommodation packages for the festival weekend. Each is in the heart of Lunenburg, within easy walking distance of the main festival event and dining venues.
