William Grant & Sons Wows with Birthday Bash at Tales

Every year at Tales of the Cocktail, William Grant & Sons unleashes their vast portfolio of great liquor brands at parties with fanfare like no other. At tonight’s party at the New Orleans Museum of Art, they pulled out all the stops in celebration of the tenth birthday of Tales.                

Among the memorable sights and sounds were a live burlesque show from Sailor Jerry’s rum; a guy on a trampoline doing flips and jumping around to shake Monkey Shoulder Cocktails outside the Slap & Tickle Village;  a circus sideshow-worthy multi-level bar from Hendricks Gin dubbed “The most utterly ridiculous Collins bar in the world”; all culminating in a fireworks show set to discoed-up live bagpipe music. Yep, bagpipes.
