On Thursday January 26th, the DCMTL Team was at the Winter Chic Igloofest event at the W hotel in Montreal.
The event was held in collaboration with Romeo’s Gin and Jagermeister, who invited us to celebrate winter with them.
Wunderbar’s chic and seductive ambiance was the perfect venue for an event like this one. The decor did it’s job and pulled us right into the mood of the evening.
DJ Sonic Crew did us the pleasure of heating up this frozen cocktail event, with some fresh electro lounge beats. We honestly could not get enough of their sound!
As soon as we arrived we were welcomed with a shot. Jagermeister, Romeo’s Gin, a little Amaretto and orange juice were served off of an ice slide that cools your drink as it poured into your shot glass. Needless to say it was a cool way to start off the night.
We were also treated to a selection of winter themed cocktails made from a mix of our host alcohols.
Some fun distractions were also set up. We had the chance to meet the event mascot and play around with their GIF photobooth.
Once it was time to head over to Igloofest we were served a hot shot, made with matcha almond milk and a little sugar, courtesy of Romeo’s Gin. All the elements of the pre-party worked together to really put everyone in the right mood to dance outside all night.
The partnership with the W Hotel has existed for a little while now and the idea for this latest event came during the Romeo’s Gin launch that had been hosted in the hotels lodges” explains Romeo’s Gin spokesperson Mélanie Gagnon.
