NEW ORLEANS, LA-October 1, 2011 – For nine years Tales of the Cocktail® has been bringing cocktail aficionados, from around the world, to New Orleans, for the most spirited event of the year. What began as a small gathering of cocktail enthusiasts and professionals has grown to become the premier cocktail festival, serving, as an annual meeting place for the world’s most influential.
The internationally acclaimed cocktail festival will be returning to its home away from home for three days of seminars, tastings, special events and more, each featuring some of the biggest names in mixology from around the world. Join us February 12-14 as we dive deep into the cocktail culture of Vancouver and sample a taste of what’s in store at the 10th Anniversary Tales of the Cocktail® this summer in New Orleans.
“The reception by Vancouver’s cocktail community this year was remarkable; I couldn’t imagine not returning in 2012” comments Paul G. Tuennerman, Cofounder and Chief Business Officer for Tales of the Cocktail®. “We’re looking forward to all that 2012 has to offer and reconnecting with our Vancouver family.”
This three-day festival will feature six seminars and tasting rooms held at the beautiful Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel, as well as opening and closing events.
