April 28th through 30th, the world’s premier cocktail festival is taking its show south of the equator to Buenos Aires for a mini-festival of seminars, events and more.
After two successful years in Vancouver, Tales of the Cocktail® on Tour, Tales of the Cocktail’s annual international satellite festival, is heading to Buenos Aires. April 28th through 30th, 2013, Argentine and other South American cocktail lovers will have a taste of what Tales of the Cocktail® is all about with a curated schedule of seminars, events and more.
“Vancouver will always be a special place for Tales of the Cocktail®. For two years the people of Vancouver welcomed us with open arms sharing their city and their intense passion for cocktails with us,” said Ann Tuennerman, Founder of Tales of the Cocktail®. “As much as we wanted to continue in Vancouver, Tales of the Cocktail® on Tour was always meant to be a traveling event and it was time to take Tales of the Cocktail® to other parts of the world.”
“It has been our utmost pleasure and honor to help build, host and participate in the Tales of the Cocktail® on Tour program during it’s two-year cycle in Vancouver,” said Lauren Mote, Events Director of the Canadian Professional Bartenders Association. “ As we waive goodbye with a happy send-off, we are excited to move forward in the Vancouver cocktail landscape and Canadian cocktail industry with some new, inspired events.”
Tales of the Cocktail® on Tour was developed in 2011 to take a little bit of the industry’s premier cocktail event around the world. Next year’s festival in Buenos Aires will feature seminars from some of the world’s top mixologists, tastings of new spirits, special events and more. As was the case in Vancouver, Tales of the Cocktail® on Tour will also dive into the local spirits culture, celebrating the unique flavor that has put Buenos Aires on the cocktail map.
“I am so excited that Tales on Tour is making its next stop in Buenos Aires,” said Charlotte Voisey, Portfolio Ambassador for William Grant & Sons USA and a founding partner of Tales of the Cocktail® on Tour. “The undeniable European connections that Buenos Aires has provide an obvious tie to New Orleans, not least as a culture of Bon Vivants who hold high the priorities of eating well and drinking together through good times and bad. As Tales on Tour heads south to spread the cocktail gospel, I have no doubt that its new host city will have plenty to teach in return.”
“Angels Share has been working for some months now to act as a catalyst to the exploding Argentine cocktail scene,” said Charles Munat, Founder of Angels Share, Buenos Aires. “One of our biggest goals has been to bring Tales of the Cocktail®, the world’s premier cocktail event, here to Buenos Aires. Today, that goal is realized. Look out, world. Here we come.”
“Buenos Aires is the cocktail capital of South America as New Orleans is one of the most important in North America,” said Martin Auzmendi, Cocktail and Spirits Journalist. “Tales coming to Buenos Aires is the chance to share experiences and show to the world how big the cocktail culture here.”
