The New Orleans Culinary and Cultural Preservation Society (NOCCPS) is a non-profit organization committed to preserving the unique cocktail culture in New Orleans and around the world through education and outreach. Every year the NOCCPS produces a number events including Tales of the Cocktail®, Tales of the Cocktail® on Tour, and Tales of the Toddy® with proceeds being invested back into the international spirits community through educational programs, scholarships, training programs and financial aid.
Tales of the Cocktail® is the world’s premier cocktail festival, bringing together the international spirits community for five days of what’s now, what’s new and what’s next in bartending. Held annually in New Orleans, Tales of the Cocktail® has something for bartenders and spirits professionals with opportunities to mix and mingle with the brightest minds in mixology during an always-spirited schedule of seminars, dinners, competitions, tasting rooms and new product launches. Join us in New Orleans July 16-20 for the 12th Annual Tales of the Cocktail® where for five days the cocktail reigns supreme. All Hail the Cocktail!
Catering to the international demand for Tales of the Cocktail events, Tales of the Cocktail on Tour was created to take the experience to different parts of the world. Started in 2011, Tales of the Cocktail on Tour is a three-day festival of seminars, tastings and nightly events expertly curated to give cocktail lovers around the world a small taste of what Tales of the Cocktail is all about. After stops in Vancouver, Tales of the Cocktail on Tour returns for a second round in Buenos Aires, April 26-29, 2014.
