New Orleans Culinary and Cultural Preservation Society Honors Recipients of the Seal Of the Sazerac® Winners

Seal of the Sazerac Honorees to be recognized on July 17th at the 2013 Tales of the Cocktail® celebration

NEW ORLEANS-May 17, 2013-The New Orleans Culinary and Cultural Preservation Society (NOCCPS) is proud to announce the 2013 Sazerac® Seal of Approval honorees. This program honors establishments that keep it classy, adhering to the traditional recipe of the official cocktail of the city of New Orleans, the Sazerac®.

"Speaking from personal experience, the well-crafted Sazerac® seems to be an elusive Cocktail.  It's great to be able to recognize this group for their success in producing the Original Cocktail," said Paul G. Tuennerman, Co-Founder, Tales of the Cocktail®.

The Seal of the Sazerac® will be presented at Toast to Tales, the Tales of the Cocktail® kick off event, on Wednesday, July 17th at 2:00 p.m. on the front steps of the Hotel Monteleone. This event pays respect to the bars that consistently make the most expertly crafted Sazeracs® the world has to offer. This summer, Tales of the Cocktail will be held July 17th through the 21st in New Orleans, LA.

The 2013 Seal of the Sazerac® recipients are:

  • Cane and Table, 1113 Decatur Street
  • Cocktail Bar at Windsor Court, 300 Gravier Street
  • Galatoire's 33, 215 Bourbon Street
  • Kingfish Restaurant, 337 Chartres Street
  • Ruth's Chris Steak House, 525 Fulton Street
  • Twelve Mile Limit, 500 South Telemachus Street

Fans from all over continue to nominate their favorite places to have a Sazerac® in New Orleans. NOCCPS has an expert team, the "Sazerac® Secret Sippers," who inconspicuously evaluate each nominated bar's Sazerac® on its ingredients, taste and presentation. The team has sampled countless Sazeracs® and visits worthy locations three times to ensure the establishments being recognized are consistent. The Secret Sippers will continue to sip for their due diligence for the Sazerac® to determine other establishments that are worthy of being honored in the future.

For more information about the Sazerac® Seal of Approval program, please contact Ann Tuennerman at Ann@TalesoftheCocktail.com.
