The renowned Tales of the Cocktail festival kicks off tomorrow in New Orleans, and backbar will be representing Boston at this year's Bar Fight Club event, taking place as part of the festival on Friday. The backbar team will be up against Trick Dog (San Francisco), Harvard & Stone (Los Angeles), Herbs and Rye (Las Vegas), Williams & Graham (Denver), and The NoMad (New York). The only rule is that the competitors make use of spirits from The 86 Company as well as Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal.
Boston's no stranger to the competition: Drink made a splash in 2010, Eastern Standard won in 2011, and Citizen Public House got the popular vote in 2013.
