Rig Hand is in the unique position of being the first craft distillery in the greater Edmonton area. Our family based business makes exceptional handcrafted liquor that is locally sourced, produced, and distributed. Our products are packaged in a distinctive trademarked bottle that is a replica of the Leduc #1 drilling rig, paying tribute to our rich history of both agriculture and resource development in Alberta.

Our aim is to be a leader in the craft industry and foster partnerships with other local businesses while producing the highest quality spirits possible for our customers. We offer tours and tastings, and both private and semi-private events. Come visit us to learn more about our products and meet our dedicated and knowledgeable staff.

Our new location offers a rustic country feel, mimicking that of an old western townscape. Outside you will find a beautifully manicured lawn for games, gatherings, and fireside chats. In our tasting room, savor the authentic cuisine curated by our chef using Rig Hand products.

Our event hall is the perfect place to hold your wedding, birthday, retirement party, corporate event, workshop, or meeting. The upper-level event hall and patio boasts stunning views of Saunders Lake as well as hand crafted beams, giving you a country feel just minutes from the city.

We are conveniently located just 4KM East of Edmonton International Airport on Airport Road.

Our tasting room offers a rustic pub vibe perfect for a daily escape from the hustle of the city. Come for our fresh food and beverage menu, stay for our dog friendly patio and live music. Bring your family and friends to enjoy a day at Rig Hand.

We offer tours, tastings and bookings from 1 to 120 people. Come visit us and enjoy a refreshing beverage and order a delicious meal from our restaurant. Let us be your new hot spot for events.
