About this Event

“The Spanish first brought bitter oranges from Seville to the island of Curaçao in 1527. The resulting fruit, Laraha, was thought to be unpalatable. But Oh! did it ever yield the most exquisite aromatics”.

Join our team at Long Table in a fascinating rediscovery of (almost) forgotten spirits and classic cocktail mixers. Enjoy a hands-on tasting seminar with Long Table Head Bartender Tarquin Melnyk. Tarquin will provide a informative masterclass on liqueurs and mixers that are making bigger than ever comebacks.

Wanna know what to do with your Grenadine, Falernum, Limoncello or Curaçao? Come learn some classic drinks with these stalwart flavors.

Enjoy a tasting and guided seminar demonstrating how to enjoy these ingredients in a variety of drinks.

For your registration fee of $75.00 all guests will be greeted with a cocktail, do a hands on ingredient tasting and receive a bottle of the first batch of Long Table Curaçao ever made as well as a sampler bottle of Orgeat.

*NOTE: This session is limited to 20 attendees.

ABOUT YOUR PRESENTER

TARQUIN J. MELNYK

Since 2010, Tarquin Melnyk has been an awarded bartender in numerous cities around the world. After transitioning from a career in Health Care, Tarquin has been on a quest to elevate beverage culture and provide a lasting experience for everyone he serves. In 2014 he resettled on Canada’s West Coast and took-over the bar at Bambudda, in Vancouver’s Gastown. There, he transformed it into one of the city’s most notable cocktail bars Vancouver according to Eater, Air Canada and BC Living. Tarquin’s love for innovative molecular drinks led him to a involvement with Ms. Better’s, makers of high quality bitters, syrups, purees and the Miraculous Foamer, an egg-white replacement that placed #10 of the ‘Top 50 Most Innovative Products in the World’ by ‘The Spirit’s Business’. As a member of the growing team at Long Table Distillery, Tarquin is simultaneously their Brand Ambassador and Distillery Bar Director, helping oversee its rise in global respect and availability. Long Table’s lounge is now hailed as one of Vancouver’s Best Cocktail Lounges.
