Planning and nominating starts now!
It’s that time of year again folks. It’s time to start saving your tips, checking up on flights, and booking your New Orleans hotels, because before you know it drinks will be flowing at the annual cocktail-a-palooza that is Tales of the Cocktail.
They’ve just announced a line up of some 74 brand new seminars to be held during the festival that takes place in New Orleans from July 16 to July 20. This year they’ve incorporated two new, more intimate types of seminars: Exclusive Tasting Seminars (which involve rare spirits and are limited to 20 people) and Technique Seminars (which are hands on technique workshops limited to 50 people).
Every seminar proposal goes through a thorough assessment lead by Philip Duff, Tales of the Cocktail’s Director of Education and Chairman of the 2014 Seminar Committee.
“After two rounds of evaluations, which included requesting rewrites of proposals that the committee felt would benefit from a second go-around, the committee is confident that the seminars chosen to be presented at Tales 2014 represent the freshest insights, most rigorous research, most compelling material and most captivating speakers in the whole world of cocktails and bars,” said Duff.
