The Festival

Welcome to the first Tribute to craft spirits Festival

This winter, TRIBUTE, with the support of Banff & Lake Louise Tourism organizes a craft spirits festival in Banff and Lake Louise! This is the newest event included in SnowDays, a two-week long celebration of winter taking place in Banff and Lake Louise.

From January 16th to 27th 2019, the TRIBUTE TO CRAFT SPIRITS FESTIVAL will feature the best craft distilleries from Alberta and British Columbia, as well as showcase the local food scene.

What is tribute to craft?

TRIBUTE is an event platform for spirits from craft distilleries, as well as local and artisanal products. It was created in 2018 by the passionate team behind MADE WITH LOVE, the most extravagant cocktail competition across Canada, with a goal to promote local craft distilleries and their artisans. Based on four main values: Inspiration, Raison d’être, Lifestyle and Entrepreneurship, TRIBUTE has already established itself on the craft spirits scene in Montreal and within the Quebec province, by hosting two pop-up bars, as well as participating in various major festivals in Montreal, such as the Francos de Montréal and Montréal en Lumière!

What is Made with Love?

International event for cocktail enthusiasts and food epicureans, MADE WITH LOVE is your annual celebration of the craftcocktails industry! The public, along with a panel of renowned judges, are invited to witness this interactive competition by savoring exclusive and extravagant creations and vote for their favorites.
