From Nov. 18 to 21, the Fredericton Delta Hotel will be hosting the NB Spirit Festival. The annual event is centered on various spirits, such as rum and whiskey, but also features gourmet food that will be paired with specific drinks.

On the first day of the festival will be the Rum Dinner, which is being introduced for the first time this year. The night will include a three-course dinner, and will be hosted by the International Brand Ambassador of El Dorado Rums, Stefanie Holt.

Frank Scott, the festival’s organizer, said that while alcohol is the focus of the event, it is not meant for people looking to get drunk, but instead to enjoy and learn about the differences between whiskies and other drinks.

The second day of the festival will include what is called the Whiskey Dinner, which will feature six courses of food and seven types of — you guessed it — whiskey.

Day three of the event will feature master classes, where there will be samples and tasting of some of your favourite whiskies, as well as probably a lot you don’t know. Glenfiddich, Canadian Club, Glenlivet and Remy Martin are just some of the drinks that will be represented by brand ambassadors.

Friday, Nov. 21 will involve a Whiskey Lunch, which starts at 11:45 a.m. Later on that night, the Festival Showcase will take place, which features over 200 different products.

Free rides home will also be provided on Friday, which shows that even though Scott doesn’t want you to get out of hand, if you’re drinking from 11:45 onwards, it’s best to plan ahead.
