Cocktail Camp 2011 was last weekend and was a huge success. We gathered together over 120 people, from enthusiasts to professionals, to share their knowledge and learn about drinking and creating well crafted cocktails.
The day was based around five discussion panels, on such topics as proper tasting of spirits, beer cocktails, new American whiskeys, home entertaining, and making your own ingredients. These panels included an astounding range of talent, from distillers to bartenders.
And lots of samples, of course.
Balancing out the educational sessions were three social hours with cocktail bars by Lillet, Northwest Distillery, and House Spirits Distillery. Each bar served two original cocktails and a punch showcasing their products.
Where Cocktail Camp 2010 was a great first start, we really found our groove in this year’s event. We’re already talking about Cocktail Camp 2012 and beyond, so keep an eye on the Cocktail Camp web site. See you next April!
