The everyday life of a nineteenth-century soldier included alcohol, from persuading the enlistment of new recruits, to fortifying one’s bravery in the field, alcohol is a part of the Halifax Citadel’s story. In 1869, a daily alcohol ration was the high-point for many soldiers and the stories associated with this reality are abound. The Halifax Citadel Society has partnered with Compass Distillers to create three unique spirits, all of which are aged in oak barrels and stored on-site at the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site. Whether you’re interested in the quick tasting experience or ready to embark on the grand tour with tasting tutorials from a professional distiller from Compass Distillers, there’s an experience for you!
