Dave Mitton

Corby / Pernod Ricard
Global Canadian Whisky Ambassador for J.P. Wiser's, Lot No. 40 and Pike Creek
For the past 18 years Dave has been working behind the wood - shaking up cocktails around the globe at spirited affairs, culinary symposiums, fashion shows, charity events, beach bars, art galleries and even the occasional grocery store.

All the while, he’s helped hold down the fort at his two Toronto establishments.
The Harbord Room, that he opened in 2007 and in 2012, he and his partners expanded the family to include its sister restaurant THR & Co. just a few doors away. He was also the inaugural President of The Canadian Professional Bartenders Association, Ontario Chapter, for its first three years.

Dave is also the Global Canadian Whisky Ambassador for J.P. Wiser’s, Lot 40, and Pike Creek at Pernod Ricard.

This role keeps him quite busy to say the least. He travels educating bartenders and consumers alike about the history, the production and of course the making of cocktails with Canadian Whisky.

He’s always had a great passion for community amongst bartenders. Dave is a big believer in training and providing staff with the knowledge and tools they need when it comes to making cocktails and working behind the stick.
