Arguably the cocktail capital of Canada, and home to some of the top ten best hotel bars in the world, Victoria is known and celebrated for its spirited drinks and the mixologists who make them. This is why the annual Art of the Cocktail event explores all areas of cocktails with two full days of tastings and seminars, from sampling and sipping, to learning the distilling process, pairings and watching the professionals compete behind the bar.
