Meet at Tales

Q MIXERS is the Official Mixer for Tales of the Cocktail® 2021. Both brands have come together to inspire and impact the industry, in another transitional year. As the world begins to reopen and acclimate to hybrid digital and physical gatherings, Q MIXERS and the Foundation will invite the global drinks industry to Meet at Tales for Tales of the Cocktail 2021 taking place September 20 -23

Meet at Tales is a virtual opportunity to connect with and learn from leaders in the industry. Tales of the Cocktail 2021 registrants can apply beginning July 19th, 2021 for an opportunity to meet one-on-one with some of the industry’s most influential leaders, from entrepreneurs and distillers to bar-owners and educators.

Each Industry Leader will select six lucky Tales of the Cocktail 2021 registrants to Meet at Tales for a 15-minute conversation and receive a custom cocktail kit developed by the Q MIXERS Industry Leader they are paired with. Following Tales, each Industry Leader will select one individual for a one-hour follow-up conversation.

Additionally, Q MIXERS will also host a series of Mix at Tales Happy Hour events, opening up this intimate opportunity to get to know each Q MIXERS Industry Leader.  These moderated virtual discussions will feature two of the Q MIXERS Meet at Tales Industry Leaders who will share their experience and field questions from the global drinks community, and enjoy a cocktail of course!

“I felt a real movement going on. One person was making his own gin, another was a long-time bartender at one of the world’s best bars; another was a journalist who had researched the history of one of my favorite drinks.  I knew no one, so I would speak to someone at a party and find out all about why they were in hot, sweaty New Orleans for Tales.”
