Our very on barman Ian Murray is headed to Tales of the Cocktail 2019 with Red Bull in New Orleans from July 18 through July 21, 2019. We can’t wait to hear all about his trip (and try the new cocktails that result from this experience) when he returns but in the meantime keep up with Ian on Instagram and make sure you are following Dram & Draught on Instagram for even more cocktail fun.
Ian was selected by Red Bull to attend as one of their guests along with seven other lead barmen and working owners from around the country. While he is there, he will get to attend educational seminars, brand education classes, tastings, cocktail tours, meet and greets with others in the industry, spirited dining and drinking events, and more. We are always looking for ways for our staff to grow their knowledge and we are excited that Ian is having the opportunity to attend for his sixth year.
“I am really looking forward to Tales because it is the first time in a couple of years that it is at a new venue – Royal Sonesta New Orleans – so it will be a completely new experience for me.” – Ian Murray
