New Orleans certainly has a cocktail culture, and this weekend, it’s the Mecca for cocktail enthusiasts and bartenders from all over the world. Tales of the Cocktail is in its 9th year, and co-founder Paul Tuennerman joins us to talk about the history of Tales and how it’s survived along with New Orleans in the post-Katrina era. In the news, a Canadian distillery starts producing single malt spirit for the future, Auchentoshan wants to “switch” bartenders, and we’ll have a sneak preview of an all-new WhiskyCast podcast!
