Compass captures the Nova Scotian experience in a bottle.
We harvest local grain and unique wild plants to make award-winning,
handcrafted spirits and bitters in the heart of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Compass Distillers is dedicated to the place we live and the products we make. The two are inseparable for us. Being a craft distiller means starting with real ingredients and nurturing the product in every step of its creation. Everything happens right here on Agricola Street in Halifax's North End. Stop in and see for yourself. We have big glass windows and we give tours.
Our head distiller loves his job, and we love his creations. Because we are local and small, we have the liberty to be creative.
