Above: Congratulations to Ryan Chetiyawardana, Alex Lawrence and the Lyan family notching up an incredible three awards including World’s Best Cocktail Bar

In case you hadn’t heard, there was a little event taking place in New Orleans last week. Not for nothing is Tales of the Cocktail regarded as The Oscars of the drinks industry… Taking in five full days of fabulousness the action-packed programme included a host of thought-provoking seminars, umpteen spirited tastings, super-cool parties and of course, the thing we’ve all missed more than anything – connecting with old and new friends from all corners of the globe.

The other big draw was the annual Spirited Awards, where people, products, bars and their teams are given huge props from their industry peers. This is how it rolled this year…
