…Next month, Drink Bar Manager John Gertsen and his team will head down to New Orleans for the third annual Tales of the Cocktail Spirit Awards. Drink, which opened in fall 2008, has been nominated as the “best new cocktail bar in the world” along with Brooklyn’s Clover Club and London’s Quo Vadis. The winner of the award, which recognizes a newly opened cocktail bar displaying creativity and well executed drinks, is selected by the Tales of the Cocktail committee. Dale DeGroff, Claire Smith, and Dave Wondrich are among the committee’s members.
“We are incredibly honored and excited to be one of the three bars nominated and we can’t wait to head down to New Orleans,” said Drink Bar Manager John Gertsen (a 2008 nominee for “mixologist/bartender of the year”). “Tales of the Cocktail is a lot of fun and brings together such an incredible crowd of bartenders, journalists, suppliers, and enthusiasts; we’re really looking forward to it.”
For several years, Tales of the Cocktail has celebrated individuals and establishments that have shown an outstanding talent for advancing the craft of the cocktail and recognized both national and international contributions to the cocktail culture. Three years ago, The Spirit Awards, sponsored by Pernod Ricard, were introduced to Tales of the Cocktail to formally recognize industry leaders and innovators.
The awards will be announced at the Tales of the Cocktail Spirit Awards Dinner on Saturday, July 11th in New Orleans.
