Photographer Tyler Shumi was on hand this past Monday night to shoot the jam-packed room at the Drake Hotel for the Maestro Dobel Tequila Competition. The tequila, which has only been on shelves at the LCBO for three months, has quickly become a hit with the city’s bartenders and eight of them were psyched to show what they could do with it (and to compete for the one thousand dollars in prize money up for grabs). Brand ambassador Jonny Gray emcee’d and bartenders Evelyn Chick (the Harbord Room), Sandy D’Almeida (the Drake Hotel) and Manny Contraras (Kasa Moto) comprised the judging panel.
