MAKER'S MARK/KALE & NORI PRESENT:
BITTERED SLING BISTRO with ARTHUR WYNNE, LEAD BARTENDER - THE CASCADE ROOM
We are proud to introduce you to "Bittered Sling Bistro" - a bi-monthly food and cocktail pairing competition dedicated to pushing the boundaries of cocktail craft presented at the beautiful Legacy Liquor Store in Olympic Village, Vancouver.
The evening starts with a cocktail reception accompanied by paired hors d’oeuvres, in the gorgeous foyer of Legacy Liquor Store. The vaulted ceilings, spirit displays and living wall create a dynamic setting for this delicious affair. Guests are guided though an interactive tasting, led by the guest bartender, right at the harvest table. The rest of the evening is rather indulgent; Kale & Nori’s Chef Jonathan Chovancek creates a seasonal three course menu, inspired by the feature spirit's wide range of notes and character. Each course is accompanied by a expertly paired cocktail by the guest bartender. Following the dinner, our guests will be invited to rate the bartender's presentation and pairing skills. The top scoring bartenders at the end of the program will compete for a grand prize.This six month program offers 6 veteran and 6 apprentice bartenders their chance to promote their style and character in an creative way. This is all about spirit - in both the bartender and the bottle.
