We will meet at Montreal’s oldest poutine spot called Montreal Pool Room and get to know each other over a delicious hot poutine to prepare our bellies for the upcoming cocktails. Next, we will go to Taverne Midway and find their hidden speakeasy all the way at the back end of the bar which opens up to a back alley off the busy streets of the Montreals red light district. We will start by tasting 3 local spirits which will be used afterwards to create 2 or 3 different seasonal craft cocktails using only Quebecois products. A small description and backstory of the origins and the techniques used for the cocktails will also be explained by Max. The experience is participatory and you'll be able to handle the products with Max however the focus is mostly on learning about local products, cocktail making techniques and having an authentic experience with a local ! Each guest will enjoy 2-3 full cocktails each as well as a tasting flight of the products used in the cocktails.
