Breaking News: RCMP investigate after metal found in potato

Evan MacEachern a an NSLC outlet with Nova Scotia Spirit Co. product.

PICTOU COUNTY - A local company, Nova Scotia Spirit Company, has launched the province’s first locally produced rum, gin, and vodka in the sub $30 category at the Nova Scotia Liquor Commission stores.
“Coming from Cape Breton and having cut my teeth working in local Halifax pubs, I knew people want a quality local product but at a reasonable price point. That is why Nova Scotia Spirit Co. products were born – local and affordable,” says Evan MacEachern, general manager of the Nova Scotia Spirit Co.
Based in Pictou County, the small company wanted their brand to pay homage to the history and culture of their location. They found that answer on the building’s front door on day, in a local job poster: Commercial lobster fishermen from Balantyne’s Cove Antigonish County is looking to hire a helper for the summer. Basic requirements: sober, alert, willing to learn.
“We were racking our brains to come up with names for our products then one morning this job ad shows up, posted on our door. It was perfect; really spoke to the hardworking culture that Nova Scotia was built on.”
Nova Scotia Spirit Co. later found out that it was for local fishermen Keith Adam’s.
Nova Scotia Spirit Co. is a Nova Scotia company based in Pictou County. Currently proud to be the regions fastest growing distillery, their aim is to bring world class spirits to Nova Scotian’s at an affordable price.
