Tales of the Cocktail Heads to Vancouver

Tales of the Cocktail is taking its popular cocktail festival on the road next month and heading north to Vancouver, BC. With such a vibrant cocktail culture, Vancouver is the perfect location for a cocktail event and a fun city to explore. The event will feature a great line-up of seminars from some of the world’s top cocktail experts, including:

* Famous New Orleans Cocktails led By Chris McMillan and Philip Greene
* Who's Your Daddy? A Mai Tai Paternity Test led by Jeff Berry
* For the Love of Gin led by Desmond Payne and Dan Warner
* The Science of Cocktails: New Techniques Behind the Bar led by Dave Arnold and Eben Klemm

* The Birth, Death and Rebirth of Canadian Whisky led by Allen Katz and Drew Mayville with Neal McLennan and David Wolowidnyk

There will also be plenty of tastings and parties and a BC Bar Crawl. Ticket packages cost $155, and only 300 tickets are available, so you'll definitely want to get yours in time.
