Montreal’s Regional Finals of MADE WITH LOVE 2018 — the biggest mixology competition in Canada — will take place at the SAT on Monday, December 10. The 10 edition of this annual extravangaza will undoubtedly impress cocktail lovers who are on the hunt for some out-of-this-world flavours.


The MWL team have prepared a cocktail party that aims to be bigger and better than ever. Join them for a spectacle offered by the industry, where the best of the city’s Barchefs will come together for one evening to celebrate Montreal’s cocktail culture, and, of course, 10 years of MADE WITH LOVE. This is a date you will definitely want to put in your diary.


The proud competitors from the best bars and restaurants will take on the challenge of presenting an exclusive creation to an eager crowd and a panel of experts.
