TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bombay Sapphire Gin presents ‘Canvas Bar’, the first-ever interactive cocktail bar where guests can enjoy DIY drinks and play the role of master mixologist. The pop-up located at 950 Queen St. W. in Toronto, is open to the public Thursdays through Sundays until November 30th, hosted by the most imaginative bartenders from across North America.
Designed to inspire creativity, ‘Canvas Bar' invites guests to customize their own Bombay Sapphire Gin cocktails using the glass as a canvas. The space will house a mixing wall of vapour-infused tonic jars with Bombay Sapphire’s essential botanicals, encouraging guests to enhance drinks by misting, spritzing and garnishing. Bar patrons can also choose from a selection of unique cocktails crafted by different world class mixologists every week.
“‘Canvas Bar’ represents a fusion between art and mixology. We’re giving guests the freedom to experiment and stir creativity,” says Ridley Doolittle, Senior Brand Manager at Bombay Sapphire Canada. “This is an opportunity for people to reimagine their favourite gin in a creative way, and hopefully discover something new in the process.”
‘Canvas Bar’ will host some of the most creative bartenders from across the continent, including Austin Millspaugh, 2018 Global Finalist of the United States’ Bartender Guild (USBG) Bombay Sapphire’s Most Imaginative Bartender Competition. Millspaugh, among others, have been distinguished as the country’s top bartenders for their artistry and creative use of ingredients. Each has been tasked to concoct bespoke cocktails celebrating Bombay Sapphire Gin’s unique flavour and encouraging guests to do the same. The roster of incredible bartenders rotates weekly, so there’s always something new to uncover.
Behind the bar you will find top bartenders from across North America including Williamsburg’s Westlight, Dallas’s The Standard Pour, Miami’s Broken Shaker, Toronto’s Drake Mini Bar, Vancouver’s Botanist, Halifax’s The Exchange on Hollis, and Montreal’s Pearl & Paddock, recognizing and celebrating talent at home and abroad.
This is the first North American stop for ‘Canvas bar’, and it is also popping up across the world, making its way through major cities like Brussels and London, all in an effort to inspire people to unlock creative potential and stir creativity.
