About Tales of the Cocktail

Founded in 2002, Tales of the Cocktail® has grown from an annual walking tour of historic New Orleans cocktail bars, into the world’s premier cocktail festival. Each year the international bar and spirits industry is welcomed to New Orleans for a week of seminars, tastings, networking and special events. With hundreds of opportunities developed specifically for bartenders, distillers and other bar and spirits professionals, Tales of the Cocktail® is the industry’s annual meeting place for the exchanging of new ideas, products and techniques. In addition, Tales of the Cocktail® also produces Tales of the Cocktail® on Tour, manages the Tales 365 membership program, and publishes bartender-focused educational content year-round on TalesoftheCocktail.com.

New Orleans Culinary and Cultural Preservation Society

Tales of the Cocktail® and its associated events are produced by the New Orleans Culinary & Cultural Preservation Society (NOCCPS), a non-profit organization committed the advancement of the craft of the cocktail through education, networking and promotion.
