Toronto Results 2017

Toronto dazzled by the talent of the eighteen regional finalists of the MadeWithLove competition!

Toronto, March 28th 2017 The entire Toronto bar community and cocktail enthusiasts gathered last Monday to experience their very own regional edition of Made With Love, Canada’s largest mixology competition. Last night, eighteen audacious barchefs confronted to offer not just the best, but the ultimate creation that would amaze the epicurean crowd at the beautiful venue that is the Liberty Grand from 6pm to 11pm.

The eighteen regional finalists, who had been selected at the qualification round held in February, competed for the titles of public’s choice and jury’s choice in an atmosphere that awakened the senses. The barchefs doubled with ingenuity not to let down the crowd of 600 cocktail lovers who showed their support to the local bartending scene.

Who was crowned the great winner? For its great return in Toronto, MadeWithLove is proud to announce that Jamison Cass representing Baro won both the jury’s choice and the public choice award with his Tequila-based cocktail. Nick Incretolli representing Bar Sazerac won public choice 2nd place with his rum-based cocktail.

This well deserved victory will bring these two barchefs to compete against the best canadian mixologists at the MadeWithLove finale on May 16th in Montreal. Both finalists will try to bring home the title of best Canada’s barchef along with a trip in one of our partner’s distilleries.
