2011: My Year in Cocktail Writing

2011: A Year of Spirituous Travel

In 2011, I traveled to 12 foreign countries not counting repeats on 22 different trips, flying 156,000 miles to do so. I had a mere 80 nights in hotel rooms and one or two hangovers.

My trips this year were: 

  • Vino 2011 in NYC
  • Jameson Irish Whiskey in Ireland
  • Casa Noble Tequila in Mexico
  • Angostura Bitters/Rum in Trinidad
  • Pioneers of Mixology in Los Angeles
  • Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America in Orlando
  • Bacardi Global Legacy Cocktail Competition in London and Spain
  • Bombay Sapphire Botanicals in London and Italy
  • Karlsson's Vodka in Sweden
  • G'Vine Gin Connoisseur Competition in France
  • Diageo World Class Competition in India
  • Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans
  • ZU Vodka in Poland
  • Purity Vodka in Sweden
  • Cherry Heering in Copenhagen
  • Bombay Sapphire/GQ Most Inspired Bartender Competition in Las Vegas
  • DonQ Rum in Puerto Rico
  • Pallini Limoncello in Italy
  • Cointreau in France
  • Auchentoshan Switch Competition in Las Vegas
  • Yamazaki Whisky in Japan
  • Taste of the Times Event in Los Angeles

I am hoping for a more localized but equally awesome 2012.
