Bastille Bartender Charles Veitch Named Tales of the Cocktail Apprentice
This is cool. Tales of the Cocktail just published its list of 2011 cocktail apprentices and among them is Bastille bar manager Charles Veitch III.
There were 50 apprentices picked—applicants submit a cocktail recipe and fill out a questionnaire. The winners head to New Orleans for the conference, where they work with and for the instructors that teach Tales seminars. (This year, one of those instructors is Andrew Bohrer, who will be teaching about ice, and cutting it up with chainsaws.) The apprentices are also eligible for a $25,000 scholarship to be used for craft-honing purposes.
Tales takes place July 20 to 24.
