TRIBUTE – Pop-up bar, a toast to local microdistilleries!

Monday, January 15, 2018 – The team behind the most extravagant mixology competition in Canada, MADE WITH LOVE, presents its newest project: TRIBUTE. Event platform that highlights exclusively spirits from microdistilleries, as well as local and artisanal products, this new identity is making its first public appearance with the launching of an audacious pop-up bar in downtown Montreal for the entire month of February.

A cocktail bar entirely Made in QC

It’s in the heart of the Quartier des spectacles that TRIBUTE – Bar éphémère will open its doors on February 1st! Situated at 1270 Saint-Dominique St., this little secret -well kept up to now- will allow cocktail amateurs, and those who are simply curious, to come and try creations prepared with spirits and artisanal products entirely made in Quebec. The cocktail bar will offer an atmosphere tinted with music and works of art from emerging local artists. A series of events happening all throughout the month will set the stage for interesting encounters with the industry and establish a dialogue between the public and the artisans. Not to be missed!

A menu of local flavors

The menu for this new bar revolves around highlighting the product itself. With a very positive response from many local distilleries, such as Absintherie des Cantons, Distillerie Cirka, Distillerie Mariana, Distillerie Shefford, Les Spiritueux Iberville, Distillerie du St. Laurent, Domaine Lafrance, Maison Sivo, Les Subversifs, Vice & Vertu etc., we can expect without a doubt a selection of various quality products. The menu, inspired by classics revisited, will offer a selection of gin, allowing the guest to create its own cocktail and therefore try its chosen product. In addition, the menu will also offer unique creations prepared by mixologist Pierre Gadouas. Local syrups and bitters will be incorporated into the recipes to offer a creative and interesting variety!

A well-received concept

This ephemeral bar makes up the first event for the TRIBUTE platform. Pierre-Olivier Trempe, founder of MADE WITH LOVE and co-founder of the Invasion Cocktail festival, has been embracing the idea of showcasing local products for many years. He realizes that “there exists a community of incredible artisans that make quality products and that have exceptional stories to tell. They share the same challenges and it is our pleasure to offer them a platform that, I hope, will help them be known”. This movement of popularity and solidarity towards local and artisanal microdistilleries is not only real here in Quebec, but also in other parts of Canada and around the world

A brand that has many surprises in store for 2018

It is worth noting that TRIBUTE is setting aside many other projects for the upcoming year. The platform commits to holding events dedicated to the general public that will allow the discovery of numerous products during these special events. TRIBUTE will also set up visits in partner distilleries… lots of great discoveries to follow!
