Si è conclusa la prima edizione della New Orleans Spirits Competition e oggi vi riveliamo tutte le medaglie e i distillati dell'anno!

Un grande successo questa prima edizione di NOSC, New Orleans Spirits Competition, che si è tenuta il 22 e 23 luglio presso il Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Oltre 500 prodotti partecipanti, una giuria di nomi importanti nel panorama americano e una grande varietà di distillati premiati. Per me è stato un vero onore far parte dell’organizzazione in qualità di steward responsabile del servizio di Liquori, amari, vermouth e specialties, perché il team di esperti che sta dietro le quinte della gara è una forza della natura. Prima di annunciarvi i prodotti vincitori voglio dunque fare i complimenti a Wayne Curtis, Andrew Faulkner e Matthew Sharpe oltre a Tales of the Cocktail Foundation per aver realizzato questo progetto e a tutti gli steward che mi hanno accompagnata in questa esperienza.
