Compass Distillers



It's no secret that Compass Distillers has made waves in Halifax's craft beverage scene, generating over 75 reputable awards since beginning production in 2017.

Step inside this cylindrical distillery and tasting bar located in North End Halifax to experience world-class spirits with a local focus. All spirits, from gin to vodka, to whisky, and more are made from Nova Scotian-grown grains, as well as other raw ingredients like sugar and molasses. Perhaps most notable for their gins, Compass sources local botanicals, like juniper, cucumber, butterfly pea flower and ginger to create striking, unique flavours that are distinctly Nova Scotian.

Learn about the Compass’ grain-to-glass process on a guided tour through the distillery; get an exclusive look at the crafting process, from milling and mashing to fermentation and distillation, and sample a custom flight of Compass spirits for the perfect way to end the tour.
