What you'll do

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.

Where you'll be

We will meet at Montreal’s most famous poutine spot to enjoy the best most authentic poutine at Montreal pool room. Next we will head to Midway which has been open since 1927. Midway is a lively pub with great bartenders and a fun, upbeat ambiance but little do most people know Midway has a hidden, swanky speakeasy located at the back of the bar!
