Napa Valley Register Weighs in on Napa Cocktail Scene



There was a great article by Emily Setsuko Shartin published in the Napa Valley Register today that does a nice job summing up the state of the Napa Valley cocktail scene.

Napa Valley has long been known for its wine culture, but with Mutineer now based in this legendary vino region, we couldn’t help but be amazed by the killer cocktail culture that has evolved through the valley’s restaurants and bars, hence The King’s Ginger Holiday Cocktail Competition last week featuring some of the best local mixologists.

From the Napa Valley Register article:

Cocktail culture continues to see a renaissance across the country, and if local bartenders have anything to say about it, the Napa Valley is not being left behind. With its wealth of local ingredients and access to high-quality spirits, not to mention an epicurean clientele, the region has become fertile ground for creative bartenders who want to push the limits.
It was unmistakable earlier this week at a holiday cocktail competition and party hosted by Mutineer Magazine at the Napa Valley Opera House, where several local bartenders showcased their skills. The event was sponsored in part by Anchor Distilling Company of San Francisco, whose President David King said the company wanted to be involved in an event outside the city, and liked the up-and-coming nature of Napa’s cocktail scene.
