“A Commercial lobster fisherman from Ballantyne’s Cove Antigonish County is looking to hire a fisherman’s helper for the summer. Basic requirements: sober, alert, willing to learn”
Nova Scotia Spirit Co. was born in Pictou County, Nova Scotia in 2015. We create small batch spirits with flavour profiles that cater to the Nova Scotian palate.
The Nova Scotia Spirit Co. brand is inspired by and built for the Nova Scotian culture of kitchen parties, storytelling, good times with friends and family, and a laid back lifestyle.
Nova Scotia Spirit Co. focuses on producing quality, small-batch spirits at an everyday price. The branding came from a help wanted ad that was posted on our door in the early days:
