TRIBUTE is an event platform for spirits from craft distilleries, as well as local and artisanal products. It was created in 2018 by the passionate team behind MADE WITH LOVE, the most extravagant cocktail competition across Canada, with a goal to promote local craft distilleries and their artisans. Based on four main values: Inspiration, Raison d’être, Lifestyle and Entrepreneurship, TRIBUTE has already established itself on the craft spirits scene in Montreal and within the Quebec province, by hosting two pop-up bars, as well as participating in various major festivals in Montreal, such as the Francos de Montréal and Montréal en Lumière!
Founded in Montreal in 2009, MADE WITH LOVE was first discovered as being the producer of the MADE WITH LOVE mixology competition, an event bringing the bartending community together, pushing the limits of creativity. The team has been orchestrating the competition in Canada’s 9 largest cities as well as Spain and Mexico. MADE WITH LOVE has been producing various events in the drink and food scene, always uplifting the cocktail culture. In 2018, MADE WITH LOVE opened its bar school downtown Montreal, making a home to host educational seminars, workshops and tastings, as well as a place to develop innovative concepts to promote craft distilleries all over the country. Their motto is simple: Passion, Excellence, Extravagance and Community.
