Tales on Tour will offer a line-up of 12 original seminars in Edinburgh

Based this year in the Scottish city, Tales on Tour will feature a line-up of 12 original seminars, presented by industry experts Ryan Chetiyawardana, Charlotte Voisey, Claire Smith Warner, Jack McGarry, and Jacob Briars.

The symposium schedule was selected by a panel led by director of education Philip Duff, and covers the techniques, history and business of making drinks – ranging from New Orleans cocktail photography to rancio.

“I’m excited to announce our most extensive line-up of seminars for a Tales on Tour ever,” said Duff.

“As well as featuring more than one of the top five seminars from Tales New Orleans 2016 such as Talking Rot, Going Back To Your Roots To Find Success and Nutmeg, we are proud to be curating brand new seminars from some of the cocktail world’s most revered presenters. The city won’t know what’s hit it!”

Attendees will be able to choose a total of six seminars – three per day – to attend during Tales of the Cocktail on Tour.

“This is our biggest offering of seminars we’ve had in our seven years of putting on Tales on Tour. Philip and his team did an incredible job of selecting seminars that will challenge and enlighten everyone who joins us,” said founder Ann Tuennerman. “April can’t come fast enough.”

The festival has also partnered with The Cocktail Lovers and The Scotch Malt Whisky Society to present a series of Dynamic Duos evening events in bars throughout the city centre.

Edinburgh is the seventh city to host the spin-off, which has previously been held in Vancouver, Buenos Aires and Mexico City.
