Review:

Stirred, spirituous and bittersweet, this aperitif-style cocktail reflects Montreal's French and English influences with London dry gin and gentian liqueur. Naturally this Canadian cocktail also features domestically produced rye whisky.

History:

Collaboratively created in summer 2017 by fifteen Montreal bartenders, with the "hope to not only inspire the people of our great city, but those of other communities across the globe, to give life and to embrace the Montreal Cocktail as a modern-day classic."

The initiative, to coincide with Montreal's 375th anniversary, was led by Kevin Demers, owner of Montreal's Coldroom. The other members of the team were: Brynley Leach, Charles Landry, Chris Natale, Drahos Chytry, Fabien Maillard, Graham Warner, Hugo Dallaire, Jason Griffin, Kate Boushel, Philippe Haman, Sabrina Mailhot, Sam Dalcourt, Tony Galdes, and Jean-Maxime Giguere.
