Your host here at Alcademics, Camper English, is once again up for the Best Cocktails & Spirits Writer award at Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans this July. I won this award in 2011 and have been nominated a few times before and after.
My fellow finalists are:
- Dave Broom, whisky writer extraordinaire (also up for Best Spirits Book for The Whisky Manual)
- Jeffrey Morgenthaler, very occasional blogger and author of The Bar Book (also up for Best Book)
- Robert Simonson, New York Times cocktail writer and author of The Old Fashioned (also up for Best Book)
I'm thinking I should probably write a book one of these days.
Alcademics.com made the long list (top 10) for Best Publication but alas didn't make the final four. Those are:
Best Cocktail & Spirits Publication
The Cocktail Lovers
The full list of finalists is here.
Anyway, if you love me at all you will keep your fingers crossed from now until mid-July when the winners are announced.
