Murray Stenson is a bartender’s bartender. For close to four decades the Seattle-based Stenson has been mixing some of the world’s best cocktails and showing us all what it means to be a class act behind the bar. Unfortunately, a heart ailment is keeping Stenson from bartending, and meanwhile, his medical expenses are mounting. But the cocktail community is rallying behind him with MurrayAid—a site dedicated to raising funds that will help offset his medical costs. Since launching over the weekend, the site has already raised close to $12,000, and the contributions continue to pour in—click here to learn how you can contribute. And to learn a little more about Murray and his contributions to the cocktail world, check out Paul Clarke’s profile of Stenson from our July/August 2012 issue.
