Welcome to Peeled

Peeled is a Calgary-based cocktail event committed to supporting, promoting and growing the cocktail industry in Calgary and sharing its stories around the world. The inaugural Peeled event will take place in Calgary August 12-14.

Launched out of a passion for the spirits industry, its creativeness and potential, Peeled is a collaborative effort between the arts community, spirits companies, mixologists, food and beverage purveyors, event planners and media to develop and grow the cocktail community in Calgary by organizing a weekend of seminars, tastings, networking events and much more.

Our goal is to grow the talent in the industry and educate the public to make Calgary a cocktail destination, much the same as has been done with the Calgary culinary scene since Top Chef brought us international acclaim. Calgary is considered a top culinary destination thanks to collaborative efforts focused on developing interesting content, spreading the word through media channels and continually innovating. Peeled strives to replicate that success for the cocktail industry and its fans.

Venue Partners

We’ve partnered with some of Calgary’s top cocktail venues for this year's festival.

The Peeled Passport

This little black book is more than your festival guide. It’s your Passport to a world of cocktails waiting to be explored across some of the greatest establishments in Calgary. Each of our partnered venues have crafted a custom cocktail, unique to their own style, and fit for reason to celebrate. Each cocktail will be exclusively available during the festival to those who posses the Peeled Passport. The passport is yours to carry with you as you travel from destination to destination, stamping your pages along the way.

Peeled Academy

Whether you’re a cocktail enthusiast or an aficionado, we’ve got something at Peeled Academy for you. Reserve a seat at Sub Rosa with Dale DeGroff, a workshop where you’ll learn how to make the best damn old fashioned, or a master class where you’ll be taught how to make your own bitters from the pros, just to name a few. The option is yours.

All adventures start with a Peeled Passport and a ticket to the Grand Event. From there you can choose what Peeled Academy classes you would like to attend.
