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.

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

In 2017, we partnered with some of Calgary's top cocktail venues to make Peeled a success.

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 available during the festival to those who possess the Peeled Passport. The passport is yours to carry with you as you travel from destination to destination, stamping your pages along the way.
